Our Story: Inspired Flooring Since 1962

Founded on outstanding service, technical expertise and dependable relationships, the Jacobsen name has since grown to stand for style, texture, innovation and performance.

Inspired by where life happens

Jacobsen’s unique approach stems from an innate curiosity about people; how they live, and how their aspirations shape the spaces they create to work, relax and play in.

Because to Jacobsen, the floor is where life happens. It defines the soul of a space, it carries stories, weathers life, supports and connects people. A floor is more than just a floor; it’s a playmat, a workspace, a dancefloor, or even a picnic spot. More than just a design element, the floor is the backdrop of a scene, and the foundation of a home or workspace.

Inspired by our people

We’re a wholly-owned New Zealand family business founded on strong family values.

Our 60 employees are like family – many have been with us for more than 10 years – and we are deeply proud and committed to every one of them.

We’re in this for the long haul. And with unrivaled expertise and an innovative spirit we’re confident we’ll be doing right by our customers for many years yet.

Inspired by a sustainable future

Jacobsen appreciates the care and consideration you put into creating the spaces where you live, work and play. Which is why we take responsibility for making your choice a little easier by working with our suppliers and partners to provide environmentally sound flooring systems.

We have implemented many initiatives to keep our environmental and ethical standards high, and ensure we are providing the best flooring systems for the environment and the community.

Committed to our communities

At the heart of Jacobsen are its people. In line with our value to create positive impact we’ve always strived to be active members of the communities we operate in.

Our staff are encouraged to sign up for volunteering events held throughout the year. These events take different forms but are generally based on us supporting projects and initiatives that align with our Jacobsen values and staff feedback. From modest gestures of generosity to our local community events our commitments intend to work towards long-term partnerships. We aim to offer our staff a choice of at least three events a year.
