Welcome to MEISTER - hardwood flooring made in Germany

The company started as a joinery workshop in 1930 and was founded by Mr. Jozef Schulte. 1954 they first started producing parquet flooring. As Mr Johannes Schulte took over the business in 1972 the company started growing exponentially  by first developing and commercializing ceiling edges, later on by skirtings, panels, laminate flooring, parquet flooring, linoleum… . In 2013,  MeisterWerke was the world´s first company to successfully produce and distribute wood-powder based flooring products under the brand names of Meister Nadura and Lindura which were later on followed by MEISTER design flooring.

MeisterWerke stands out from the rest as it always wants to differentiate itself from the competition by innovation. Innovation is the key factor to be successful in today´s highly competitive flooring business according to Mr. Johannes Schulte. Recent successful innovations are Nadura and Lindura, wood powder based flooring products, which are as hard as stone and as warm as real wood. On top of that MEISTER also developed MeisterDesign design flooring, the high qualitative vinyl flooring without vinyl - 100% PVC free.

 Press Releases

  • MeisterWerke, a leading German flooring manufacturer, is pleased to announce that we will showcase our engineered hardwood flooring lines at the 2019 NWFA Expo in Fort Worth in May. In particular, our booth will feature Lindura, the next generation of engineered hardwood flooring utilizing wood powder technology.

    Wood Powder is a unique and innovative process that when combined with a real wood sliced face veneer creates a floor that provides unmatched strength, durability and stability.

    The wood powder compound, which is a combination of real wood fibers and natural minerals, is applied to the top surface of the anti-swelling core board just prior to the pressing of the hardwood top layer. The pressing process, which incorporates heat and pressure, liquefies the wood powder compound which infuses into the pores of the hardwood creating the most durable, hard wearing engineered floor while maintaining all the natural characteristics and beauty of the wood species.

    Lindura, which was introduced to the US market in 2017 is produced in European Oak, American Walnut and American Hickory and in a wide width, long length format for a truly beautiful premium visual.
    The Lindura Collection has a floor for every style and design choice and comes in both natural species and an array of beautiful fashion forward color visuals, and is available in matte UV finishes.

    Lindura engineered hardwood is the obvious choice for the active modern family with children, pets, rolling toys, spills, high heels, and for high traffic commercial spaces where design and durability are demanded – Lindura, will take it all in its stride and look beautiful day after day.
     

    Since being introduced to the North American, Lindura has created quite a buzz in the hardwood flooring community and today Meister is delighted to be partnering with some of the leading residential and commercial floor covering distributors in the US and Canada to bring Lindura to their customers. The reaction to Lindura from distributors and end-users has been fantastic, according to Paul Walker, Meister’s North American Manager. The line offers our partners a value proposition that is unsurpassed, and with performance that is just not available from other hardwood floors. One of our first partners was Denver Hardwood and they have enjoyed tremendous success with the line over the past year. Most importantly, since introduction in Colorado the performance of the installed floors has been incredible with a virtually zero claims ratio.

    Meister will also feature our beautiful wide width, long length Cottage Plank Collection and our Residence Herringbone Collection at the Expo.

    MeisterWerke is a family owned company spanning 3 generations of the Schulte family and has been producing high quality flooring for over 80 years. In addition to engineered hardwood flooring like Lindura, Cottage Plank and Residence Herringbone, Meister also produces Nadura, Laminate, LVT, skirtings, Cork, Linoleum and Wall Panels.
