Carpet One

Guy Pylypiw, General Manager 

Guy has been in the flooring industry for almost 20 years, starting his career in the flooring department of a big box retailer. He went on to manage the flooring installations for that store before leaving to work as a project manager for a small local flooring retailer. He left there after 5 years to work as a sales manager for a large flooring manufacturer before returning to retail at Oshawa Carpet One in 2009. In 2014 Guy and his wife, Michelle, had the opportunity to purchase the store and have not looked back.

Guy is certainly an expert when it comes to carpet, hardwood, laminate...virtually every type of flooring!  Check him out in Floor Covering Weekly! 


 
Michelle Pylypiw, Communications Director

Michelle has an extensive background in customer service, including 9 years as an award winning Massage Therapist in the local area. After leaving that field to have their first son, she returned to work to manage the customer service call centre for General Motors. She left that position when their second son arrived, and when the opportunity arose to purchase the store with Guy, she jumped right in. Michelle will make sure you are taken care of as she is absolute with the satisfaction of our customers.

Mike Callaghan, Sr. Project Manager

Mike is one of the longest serving staff at Oshawa Carpet One. Mike was one of the best carpet installers we had for over a decade until the decision was made to bring him into the store in 2012, and it was a great choice! Mike takes care of our larger accounts, such as U.O.I.T, Duham College, D.C.D.S.B and numerous local contractors. He is also in charge of working with our insurance / restoration customers, helping homeowners who have had damage to their homes and are in need of flooring replacement. You will also find Mike on the sales floor assisting our Flooring Consultants and customers when needed as he has a huge pool of experience to draw on.
