For over 30 years, Duane and Holly Hukill have led Joplin Floor Designs to great success serving the Joplin, MO region in retail and commercial flooring sales, installation, and more.
When thinking about the future of the business, the Hukills searched diligently for the right team to carry the business into the future.
Two local Joplin families stepped forward to partner in ownership: Samuel Wimsett and Christina Williams Wimsett, and Jerrod and Melissa Hogan.
The Wimsetts and Hogans assumed ownership on October 13, 2023. Samuel Wimsett is overseeing daily operations and working with Duane Hukill for the next several months to ensure a smooth transition. All staff are retained in employment as the most valued asset to the business. Customers, clients, and contractors can be assured Joplin Floor Designs will maintain its long-standing commitment to quality products and impeccable customer service.
“We feel that small businesses in our community should remain locally owned - that’s why we’re so excited to carry on the legacy that started with the Hukill family. Our team, along with the incredible staff, are committed to honoring the Hukills legacy with a focus on continuing the excellent service that customers and partners have come to expect from Joplin Floor Designs.” said Samuel Wimsett, President.
A joint ribbon cutting of the Joplin Area Chamber of Commerce and Carl Junction Chamber of Commerce is planned to celebrate the new ownership on November 1, 2023 at 2:00 pm. It will be held at the Joplin Floor Designs showroom at 2309 E 32nd St, Joplin, MO 64804.
