Working With Us
Jaeckle Distributors has been Malkin’s distributor of record for over 30 years when it comes to Mannington, Florida Tile, and the many other flooring-related products they offer. Jaeckle’s level of professionalism, customer service, on time deliveries, claims response time, and quality of the product are second to no one. Jaeckle Distributors is a family owned and operated business. They treat us like one of the family. Jaeckle is also a company of yes! They always find a way to make it happen for their customers. If you are not doing business with Jaeckle Distributors, I highly suggest you do so!
Doing business with Jaeckle Distributors is a must if you are in the flooring industry. Their fast-to-answer customer service department, their highly responsive sales people, and their complete follow through process is critical for my ever-changing needs for materials. Those things, along with Jaeckle’s next-day deliveries to job sites or my warehouse, are key components to success in serving my day-in and day-out business needs.
Jaeckle takes steps behind the scenes that other distributors don’t. Their people make it much easier to plan jobs with builders and our other customers, which is very important to us. Jaeckle is a major part of our company’s success.
I am always very confident whenever I place an order with Jaeckle or whenever I need any kind of help. You are SUPERB!

Warehouse / Delivery
We operate our Madison warehouse using RF technology and a technology-based warehouse management system. This ensures that we pick and ship your order in a timely and accurate manner.
Our diverse fleet of trucks, including curtain-side and box trailers, operates with a sophisticated GPS and routing system to give you prompt and on-time delivery. For orders not delivered on our own fleet, we use the best carrier-sourcing technology to ensure prompt, reliable, and economical delivery to you.
Jaeckle Distributors has branch locations strategically placed across the Midwest. We ship daily to our Minneapolis, Chicago, and St Louis locations to offer next day delivery and will call service.
Our warehouse personnel are held to a high standard. We expect our accuracy to be 99.8% or better when picking and shipping your material. We also expect our customers to be serviced by our warehouse associates in 10 minutes or less when picking up material. We recognize that your time is valuable, and we want your experience with Jaeckle to be top-notch.
