Lux was created from a single thought: Why can't the re-flooring process be simplified? Why has the industry been so complacent, and why has there been little advancement? Armani Mahoozi, the Founder and General Manager of Lux, started his career in the financial world at age 17 and quickly became the youngest stockbroker in SEC history. He then attended the University of Virginia and graduated at the top of his class with a double concentration from the McIntire School of Commerce, where he was trained in process improvement and groomed to enter the consulting industry. During his final year of Business School, an in-class analysis of the flooring industry led him to suddenly change career paths: Unsatisfied with the mediocrity he found, Armani set out to turn the flooring industry upside-down. Lux, meaning "light" in Latin, was created to be the ‘shining light’ in the flooring industry, taking best-in-class practices from the corporate consulting world and applying them to create everyday solutions in the re-flooring process. Lux rapidly became a local-industry leader and is still the fastest growing floor-covering company in the DC, Maryland and Northern Virginia area.
