We Bring Quality, Value and Style to the surfaces in your World


Ed Ploeger, President and Owner

Bert’s Carpet Service started when Ed was 3 years old (in 1956). After graduating from Cal State Fullerton with a BA in Biology, and working as an installer and commercial flooring sales associate, Ed purchased Bert’s in 1986, and migrated the operation from primarily a retail installation house to a full-service commercial flooring contractor, now called FloorTech. Over the last 25+ years, Ed has grown FloorTech into a well-known, well-respected, nationwide commercial flooring contractor, leaving his fingerprints all over the flooring and design marketplace. Since 2002, Ed has expressed his passion for people by participating on the Advisory Board of World Help, a faith-based humanitarian organization serving the physical and spiritual needs of impoverished communities around the world.

Casey Ploeger – Sales and Project Manager

Born and raised in Cerritos, CA, Casey attended and graduated Cal State Fullerton with a BA in Psychology, which prepared him with interesting tools for working in the Commercial Flooring industry. Throughout college, Casey served as FloorTech’s Warehouse Manager and in 2007, he moved into his current sales and project management position. Married to Carly in 2010, Casey and his new wife settled in Pasadena, CA  where Carly serves the community as a High School English teacher.


Steve Morehead – Sales and Project Manager

Steve is FloorTech’s resident tile expert. A Los Angeles native, Steve met Tracy, his wife of 31 years at the Surf Theater in Huntington Beach. Steve embarked on his flooring career in 1977; he began as a tile helper and attained journeyman status in 1980. With 20 years’ experience under his belt, Steve joined FloorTech in 1997 as part of a traveling crew, handling installations from Alaska to New Jersey! Since 2006, Steve has earned his role as FloorTech’s go-to guy with all things ceramic and stone, serving as a sales and project manager. Steve works hard but still makes time for Tracy, Lauren (their daughter), reading, sailing and diving.


Justin Bomgaars – Inside Sales and Project Manager

With his BS in Finance and Marketing from California State University, Long Beach, Justin was just the person FloorTech needed to wrestle control of an explosion of national retail clients’ business. In his role as Inside Sales Manager, you can almost always find Justin onsite at FloorTech’s southern California office. Soft-spoken but relentless in his work, Justin also has a heart for the underserved. Just prior to joining FloorTech in 2005, he spent 2 months in El Salvador, involved in volunteer humanitarian activities (along with just maybe a bit of surfing, soccer and volleyball as well?).


Rick Gregory – Sales and Marketing

Not only does Rick bring 35 years of floorcovering sales, marketing and writing experience to FloorTech, he brings a sincere and genuine ability to communicate with people. A life-long learner (he earned a BS in Animal Science, followed by an MBA – all after age 50!), Rick has a passion for investing in the lives of marginalized people, especially in sub-Saharan East Africa. Along with his wife, Sherry, Rick spent 8 of the last 10 years in and out of Africa, teaching the poorest of the poor to drill their own water wells. Ask Rick about some African stories!
