Founded by Roger De Clerck, parent company Beaulieu International Group (B.I.G.) and Beauflor® have an unconventional history sown from a family farm along the Golden River in Belgium. As one of many flax farmers in the area, De Clerck faced great competition and needed to add new value to an oversaturated market. He devised a way to use the flax harvested not as an agricultural item, but as an upholstery product.
Over time, this upholstery evolved beyond just natural products and expanded into plastic and polypropylene granules that De Clerck produced himself. B.I.G. today continues to produce these granules, along with fibers, yarns, carpets and the vinyl flooring products manufactured by Beauflor®.
B.I.G. remains a private, family-owned business that honors and continues to practice our founding father’s vision of innovation. De Clerck’s entrepreneurial spirit has been passed down to his children, now co-owners of B.I.G. and its subsidiaries, and woven into all facets of this global company.
At Beauflor®, we work with purpose and passion. We remain and intend to remain a family-owned company that celebrates a spirit of enterprise and ambition, rooted in a legacy of entrepreneurship. As a result of performances in innovation, quality and market leadership, Beauflor® provides value for customers, employees, suppliers, shareholders and the communities where we work and live.
