HomeNewsLewis Lumber and Milling earns key certifications

St. Louis—Lewis Lumber and Milling recently earned quality certifications from the National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA) and the National Oak Flooring Manufacturers Association (NOFMA). The Dickson, Tenn.-based company manufactures red oak, white oak, and hickory unfinished flooring in multiple widths and lengths.

“We are pleased to welcome Lewis Lumber as the newest member of the NWFA/NOFMA program,” said John Forbes, NWFA manufacturer services director. “Embracing transparency and third-party certification in the wood flooring space has become a requisite to compete at a high level. The growing list of NWFA/NOFMA manufacturer members is an excellent example of this growing market demand.”

Lewis Lumber and Milling prides itself on manufacturing high-quality unfinished hardwood plank flooring for quality-oriented hardwood flooring distributors. “It has been a gratifying challenge to help build the business at Lewis Lumber and Milling,” said Tim Ellrich, sales manager. “The NWFA/ NOFMA program gives us the tools and feedback to continue being successful in the future.”

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. Trained inspectors check to ensure that each piece of hardwood flooring leaving the mill meets the high standards for NOFMA certification. Certified mills are inspected a minimum of two times per year to ensure consistent grade standards are met.
