Dalton Carpet One & DCO Commercial Under New Ownership

Athens, GA, January 8, 2019--Dalton Carpet One and DCO Commercial Floors are now owned by two long-time employees, JR Allred and Curtis Blanton.

Co-owner and fifteen-year employee, JR Allred now serves as president of Dalton Carpet One. He has worked with Dalton Carpet One since 2004 in many aspects of the company, acquiring a working command of the business.

Son of late founder, Mike Blanton, co-owner, and eleven-year employee, Curtis Blanton serves as president of DCO Commercial Floors, encompassing the commercial flooring and window treatment divisions. His flooring career is one of leadership within both Dalton Carpet One and DCO Commercial Floors, which he has managed since 2012. 

The sister companies found themselves without an owner when the founder, Mike Blanton, passed away suddenly in March 2017. Allred and Blanton aim to continue managing the business in the same manner Mike did by living out the company’s core values: focusing on the customer, doing whatever it takes, and always getting better.

The late Mike Blanton started this flooring business on July 5, 1978, with only one other part-time employee. DCO Commercial Floors grew from the existing commercial customer base and became its own brand in 2007. 

Curtis Blanton was named a 2018 Future Focus Leaders award winner.
