VinylasaSolon, Ohio—Tarkett, a worldwide leader in innovative flooring and sports surface solutions, has completed the acquisition of Vinylasa, a vinyl composite tile (VCT) manufacturer based in Mexico City, Mexico.

With this acquisition, Tarkett will transition VCT manufacturing from its Florence, Ala. location to the Vinylasa location in Mexico. This transition is expected to be complete by the end of the year, with all VCT products for Tarkett North America manufactured at the Mexico City location beginning in 2022.

“Vinylasa is known for great quality and service,” said Eric Daliere, president & CEO, Tarkett North America and Tarkett Sports. “With this acquisition, we are improving our VCT product offering, service levels and competitiveness. At the same time, we are creating space and focus on domestic LVT production at our Florence campus. We’re pleased to welcome the team to Tarkett.”

Vinylasa specializes in manufacturing through-patterned VCT tiles and has supplied the North American market with high-quality products for more than 50 years. The addition of Vinylasa enables Tarkett to increase its competitiveness with VCT in the North American market, the company said, strategically positioning the company to better serve the needs of its customers.

New products

Tarkett has introduced a new vinyl composition tile design, Tarkett VCT II, available in 45 fresh colors, manufactured in the company’s new Mexico City facility, which is a result of the recent acquisition of Vinylasa. The collection is made to withstand heavy traffic and rolling loads, delivering strong performance for demanding spaces, especially within education, retail and healthcare environments, according to the company.

The new Tarkett VCT II collection is a combination of great design and outstanding value,” said Jason McKee, senior product manager for Tarkett North America. “Our robust palette of modern neutrals and colorful accents can be mixed and matched in creative layouts that create visual interest and help tell a brand’s story. When you consider the benefits of Tarkett VCT for human and planet health, it’s just a complete solution from every angle.”

Aligned with the company’s commitment to sustainability and circular economy, Tarkett VCT is 100% recyclable, made with 85% limestone and is phthalate-free to support better indoor air quality.
