Manteca, Calif.—The B.R. Funsten and Tom Duffy Company has entered a distribution partnership with Congoleum and will begin to offer its Alternatives VCT (vinyl composition tile) in early August. The Alternatives portfolio offers traditional 12 x 12 tiles composed of 80% durable limestone.

Funsten is an industry leader, providing best-in-class service with high integrity and professionalism across the organization. We are very proud to announce this new partnership and the opportunities that lie ahead.”
