PRESS RELEASE – For immediate circulation

Introducing the newly formed MFA – Multilayer Flooring Association. Seven of North America’s leading flooring companies have come together to form this new association to serve the North American Floorcovering Industry. These seven companies are:

Introduced in 2012, polymer composite rigid-core floor products have seen explosive growth across the flooring industry. Consumers, purchasers, and specifiers expect a discernible set of standards for this new category; and because these new multilayer floors do not properly fit into existing resilient or laminate standards, there is a need for a new industry association to define the quality and performance standards to sustain its future. The goal of the association is to enable a stronger and better controlled hybrid flooring category for the benefit of all stakeholders.

The MFA will be headquartered in Georgia at:

Address: 119 Thomas St. Calhoun, GA, 30701
Phone #: 706-624-6586

  • Harlan Stone | Halstead International/Metroflor Corp. | President
