Palazzi Brothers
  Brothers Paul and Marco Palazzi immigrated to Canada in 1954 from Fano, (in the province of Pesaro), Italy. In 1959, with hard work and ambition, the two men started their company from Paul’s home on Giles Blvd. in Windsor, Ontario. Palazzi Brothers Carpet and Tile Ltd. is a household name here in Windsor and Essex County. Marco and Paul never forgot their origins.

In the early years Paul and Marco, along with their wives Betty and Elena, handled all aspects of the flooring business: ordering, designing and installing flooring. In 1963, younger brother Max joined his brothers. Business grew to the point where their first building at 3449 Walker Road was erected.
