In 1959 Mr. & Mrs. Joseph Namen married and settled in Jacksonville, Florida. Their first business venture began with the purchase of Washland cleaners on Hendricks Ave. They expanded to five locations both Dry Cleaning and coin laundry. Being involved in the cleaning of fine draperies led the Namen’s to expand the business into designing and manufacturing custom draperies, this eventually led them into the flooring industry.

In 1970 Mercury Carpet & Flooring opened its doors in a converted gas station, located on St Augustine Road. The bay areas were loaded with rolls of carpet and the showroom was a 10'x10' area where the attendant used to sell oil and coolant. In just one year’s time the business grew, as did the need for a larger facility. In 1971, they purchased the current location at 5911 Beach Blvd.

Dan Tristan joined Mercury Carpet & Flooring in 1988. In 1989 and fresh out of college and armed with a business degree from Auburn University, John Namen, Joseph and Vicki’s youngest child, joined the family business, giving his parents a well-deserved break. John grew up in the carpet warehouse so it was only natural for him to now run the company. In 2001 Dan Tristan and John Namen formed a business partnership.

In January of 2002, George Tristan, a flooring professional with over 36 years of experience, joined Mercury Carpet & Flooring, and is currently a valued member of their staff. In 2005 the need for additional office and sales assistance was needed and Cristal Devenburg became a part of the Mercury Carpet family.

Through the years the showroom and warehouse has expanded and now showcases over 10,000 sq ft of flooring, including Carpet, Hardwood Floors, Laminate, Marble, Granite, Sheet Vinyl, Solid Vinyl Tiles, Porcelain Tiles, Cork, Bamboo, Travertine and Stone.
