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.
ISO 9001 Our Quality Management System (QMS) is third party certified to ISO 9001. The result is a highly organized and structured approach that ensures the efficient, effective management and continual improvement of our quality systems.
Drywall to Flooring Mannington has taken an innovative approach to sourcing post-consumer recycled content by utilizing one of the largest construction waste steams - drywall. At least one ton per day of post-consumer drywall is diverted from landfills and used in our premium tile products.
Carpet to Resilient Relay RE breaks new ground offering a resilient sheet option with 35% recycled content - 20% post consumer and 15% pre-consumer. Infinity RE as its base, diverts one of the largest construction waste streams from the landfill - post-consumer carpet - and closes the loop by putting this recycled content back into new product.
 
Actions
LOOP Carpet Reclamation Program Mannington is diverting one of the largest construction waste streams by utilizing recycled carpet tile material for our Infinity RE Backing System. All recycled carpet tile projects over 2,500 sq. yds. will be reclaimed and recycled at no charge. For projects falling under this minimum size, contact us at 800.241.2262 for further details on this program. Close the LOOP by recycling your used carpet.
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.
Department of Energy Better Plants Partner Energy is a critical resource for our company and to our country. Mannington has set an ambitious goal to increase our energy efficiency and reduce carbon emissions. Over the next ten years, we will reduce our energy intensity by 25%. We have partnered with the US Dept of Energy and are now nationally recognized as a Better Plants Partner.
