My name is Robert Zeidman. I'm honest, fair and my repeat customers rely on my knowledge of how the materials are going to perform. I measure and layout every job I open, and inspect every carpet that comes into our warehouse.

 

History

It started with my father — Warren Zeidman — when he saw a need for better quality carpets.
 

Back in the 60's he was a young father and new school teacher at Plainview High School. He bought a house in Commack NY, and went to a local carpet store with drawn plans for his house, looking to purchase carpet. The store owner was so impressed with his plans, that they wanted him to work for them. So on weekends, he started going out to their customers, drawing up floor plans for them. As the housing market in Commack, and Dix Hills started to grow, he started to sell carpet. At this time he also started a company to distribute padding, which came to be Rennco Distributing. As the business grew, he acquired a warehouse and the business expanded to distribute padding to stores and sell carpet to the public. Many years later, as his family grew, his son Robert (myself) decided to enter the business. So in 1988, I started my own company, Excel Carpet Ltd. to work along side with my father. I decided to open a closed decorator showroom, rather than a store front. Excel gained a following, through my father's contacts, and customers, and the business grew. Today both companies still work side by side, father and son. Mom — Rose — works there as well.
