Home Press Release Buchanan Hardwoods’ Elite Flooring receives NWFA/NOFMA certification

St. Louis — The National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA) has announced that Buchanan Hardwoods, Aliceville, Ala., has earned the NWFA/NOFMA Mill Certification for its Elite Flooring.

“Buchanan has joined the NWFA/NOFMA certification program as another partner in setting the standard for quality hardwood products,” said Michael Martin, NWFA president and CEO. “We are happy to present this certification to Buchanan for its Elite Flooring product line. The company’s addition to NOFMA, which has existed for more than 100 years, is another demonstration of the value of the program.”

Buchanan entered the flooring business in 1999, though it has been in the lumber industry for 75 years. The company owns or manages 100,000 acres of timber land in the South, sourcing its hardwood timber for lumber and flooring production from the Tombigbee River Basin in Alabama to the Appalachian Mountains.

“The NWFA/NOFMA Certification is valuable to our business relationships with our customers,” said Doug Fikes, Buchanan general manager. “It provides an extra level of confidence that what we produce is equal to their expectations.”

The NWFA/NOFMA certification shows that a manufacturer’s wood flooring meets or exceeds the industry standards for grade, configuration, moisture content, and average board length. Certified mills are inspected a minimum of two times per year to ensure consistent grade standards are met.

“Having a third-party, governing organization recognize our products for their quality offers an added assurance customers appreciate,” said Bill Buchanan, the company’s owner.
