Manufacturing
ISO 14001 Facilities ISO 14001 environmental management systems specifically monitor actions that may affect the environment, to ensure that they are understood, controlled and checked. The result is a highly organized and structured approach that ensures efficient, effective management and continual improvement of our environmental systems.
 
Actions
waste in ÷ waste out >1 Net User of Waste Decreases the amount of waste we produce in the manufacturing process and increases the reuse of waste materials in place of virgin raw materials. We invest in technology to produce flooring as cleanly, efficiently and conservatively as possible.
Purple Martins An environmentally sound approach to insect control - attracting purple martins. These birds eat lots of insects. We have purple martin gourds in our facilities and the populations of these migratory birds are growing.
Sample Return One of the simplest ways to conserve resources is to reuse what we can. Return samples utilizing our postage-paid return labels and we will reuse the sample and send it on to the next user.
