Calhoun, Ga. — Mannington Commercial said it has become the only manufacturer to produce click installation system commercial LVT in the U.S.
The company is manufacturing its LockSolid lines of LVT entirely in its Georgia facilities. The patented floating floor system can be installed over subfloor, existing surfaces, and areas where moisture is a challenge or asbestos removal is a problem. Since beginning on-shoring production of Mannington and Amtico LVT products in 2013, Mannington said it has already seen a 30% increase in jobs in its plants in Madison and Conyers, Ga., with more than 200 additional jobs to be added by the end of 2014.
Mannington said that domestic manufacturing enables the company to deliver LVT with much shorter lead times–seven business days as compared to an industry standard of 14 weeks–and better customer service.
