Home News NALFA celebrates industry’s best at 7th annual LAMMY Awards

Each year, North American Laminate Flooring Association (NALFA) honors the industry’s leaders, both on an individual level and at the corporate level. The 2012 LAMMY Awards winners are no exception, with a roster including those who have made exceptional contributions to the laminate flooring world.
