History of Apex Floor Sanding

Apex Floor Sanding has a long, proud heritage and an enviable reputation for enhancing Brisbane’s floors.

With origins as far back as 1948, today Apex Floor Sanding is one of the largest floor sanding companies in south east Queensland

It has its origins as far back as 1948 and is today one of the largest floor sanding companies in south east Queensland. You’re dealing with a company with a wealth of floor sanding knowledge.Its beginnings tell the story of how a great company has evolved and why so many Queenslanders have trusted them and been delighted with the results.

Apex Floor Sanding was started by Mr. Bill Berndt – a skilled floor sander with ‘Chetham & Fletcher’ – the sole floor sanding company in Brisbane prior to World War II.

Bill gained a glowing reputation among customers and peers for his keen attention to detail and delivery of high quality workmanship. However, like so many others, Mr. Berndt had a break from his profession when he enlisted and served for his country.

Following the war, back in his home town of Brisbane he decided to start his own floor sanding company. In 1948 he chose to call his new enterprise the ‘Apex Floor Sanding Company’.

‘Apex’ was decided upon as it means ‘pinnacle’, referring to the ‘pinnacle of success’ and the ‘pinnacle of workmanship’. This gives you an idea of Bills’ high standards — standards that permeate the culture of the business today.

In the 50’s and 60’s, the demand for quality floor sanding was met by increased competition from many other firms eager to capitalise on the relatively new industry. However Apex Floor Sanding Pty Ltd continued to flourish. The company’s reputation spread like wildfire throughout the blossoming city. This was due in part to the knowledge and skills that Bill generously passed on to his employees as well as the determination to deliver high standards of integrity and honesty.

It’s easy to see why Apex Floor Sanding is so highly regarded today.

In 1972 Bill’s son, Peter joined his father’s business, quickly ‘learning the ropes’ and by 18 years of age was ‘running his own crew’.In 1980 Peter took on the responsibility of running the entire business and he remains actively involved in the business on a day-to-day basis. Today he is
its proprietor and General Manager and he remains just a phone call away to answer his clients’ questions or to offer advice on flooring solutions.

When Peter explains the culture of Apex Floor Sanding, he speaks of how his team will…
