The Resilient Floor Covering Institute has expanded membership, adding four manufacturers and three suppliers to its roster. Resilient flooring manufacturers Shaw Resilient, Novalis Innovative Flooring, Mohawk and EarthWerks have joined the industry association, as well as suppliers PLI PAK-LITE and SELIT, both providers of flooring underlayment, and HPS Schonox, makers of primers and moisture mitigation materials. RFCI membership represents more than 95% of all resilient flooring marketed throughout North America.
“RFCI’s expanding membership is continuing evidence of the growth of the resilient flooring category and luxury vinyl tile in particular,” said Dean Thompson, RFCI president. “RFCI members are known for their innovation, quality and sustainability. We welcome these new members who share our commitment to improve the industry and advance our sustainability initiatives.”
RFCI is an industry trade association of leading resilient flooring manufacturers and suppliers of raw materials, additives, and flooring accessories for the North American market. The association has led the development of leading-edge sustainability tools such as Product Transparency Declarations and Environmental Product Declarations and certifications such as NSF/ANSI 332 and FloorScore. These programs have helped keep resilient flooring at the forefront of sustainability developments in the floorcovering industry. The tools and certifications provide transparency to product ingredients and environmental impacts, while ensuring that information is factual, comparable and based on established scientific practices.
