Our
History

Darren Abraham purchased Preston Carpet Distributors in 1988 and changed the company name to Abraham Linc. Our company name was created to define our role as the link between suppliers and dealers. Since then, Abraham Linc has grown to be a Mid-Atlantic floor covering distributor known for reliable delivery, excellent customer service, and doing the right things right.

We have recently updated our marketing, delivery, and warehouse strategies and devoted significant resources to provide better products more efficiently. A new state-of-the-art facility was constructed, our transportation system was refined, and highly skilled and experienced operations and sales teams were recruited.

Abraham Linc is proud to be a customer-focused, privately-held choice distributor. We supply our customers with the best products, and a strong business relationship. Our markets have expanded and continue to do so.
