Kraus was founded in Kitchener, Ontario in 1959. The company provides stylish and classic flooring solutions that are fairly priced. While Kraus is no longer a Canadian-owned company, it is still an important employer in Waterloo, Ontario where they have a carpet manufacturing facility. The facility employs around 350 people. They also have distribution facilities across Canada that add to their significance as an employer.

Since 2020, Kraus has been a part of Marqui Ind., which has helped the company to re-enforce its position in the flooring industry. In addition to carpets, Kraus also makes vinyl and laminate flooring.
