Salem, N.J.—Fairleigh Dickinson University’s Rothman Institute of Innovation and Entrepreneurship recently named Mannington the New Jersey Family Business of the Year for 2016.

This recognition coincides with the company’s centennial year as it joins an elite group of local and national family-owned companies—those in continuous business for 100 years. As only 1% of family-owned businesses survive to the fourth generation, Mannington’s success as a fifth generation, family-owned company places it in rarified company.

Keith Campbell, chairman of the board, said, “My great grandfather started Mannington 100 years ago as a way to stay close with his two sons. It was truly a family business. Here we are in our fourth generation, moving into the fifth, and we’re still a true family business. It’s an honor to be recognized and I know they would be proud of what Mannington has become.”

Mannington produces the great majority of its flooring at its own manufacturing plants in the United States: 100% of its sheet vinyl and vinyl composition tile in New Jersey; 100% of its laminate flooring in North Carolina; 100% of its commercial carpet in Georgia; 100% of its rubber flooring in California and Florida; about 90% of its hardwood flooring in Alabama and North Carolina; and 80% of its LVT in Georgia.

A commitment to the world outside of Mannington is central to the company’s core value of “do the right thing.” Reducing Mannington’s impact on the environment through a reduction in water and energy usage, an increase in recycling and product life cycles, and other initiatives has won the company various accolades.

As a major employer in the communities where it resides, Mannington is able to support a variety of national and local organizations/events. Among those in New Jersey are The United Way, Habitat for Humanity, Meals on Wheels, Food Bank of South Jersey and Ronald McDonald House of Southern New Jersey.
