On July 26, Delta Hardwood Flooring, Inc., an upstate New York-based producer of hardwood products and marketer of its new brand, Eagle Bay Hardwood Flooring, has purchased the finishing lines and related equipment from Lumber Liquidators. As part of their quarterly report, Lumber Liquidators released details of the agreement wherein Delta/Eagle Bay has agreed to sell finished products and provide certain services to Lumber Liquidators moving forward. This agreement will represent approximately one quarter (25%) of the unit production previously handled in the Lumber Liquidators’ Toano, Virginia facility, with the balance being supplied by other third-party, unaffiliated vendors.
“This new agreement is clearly beneficial for all involved. We’re ready to launch our Frank Lloyd Wright Collection through Lumber Liquidators, and by adding finishing capabilities, we will now be producing all phases of our quality hardwood flooring collections. We have the space, the manpower and with the move of the finishing lines to our Boonville, New York facility… we have the ability to handle every aspect of flooring production,” said Randy Bowers, President & Founder of Delta/Eagle Bay.
“We have worked with Lumber Liquidators for many years as an OEM/private label supplier, and while doing so, have developed a strong relationship,” Bowers continued. “This new business transaction and resulting responsibilities will make our bond even stronger… and, our collective sales even greater!”
Dennis Knowles, CEO of Lumber Liquidators added, “We are excited and confident about expanding our partnership with Delta Hardwood. We are placing our trust in Delta to produce our most premium brand, Bellawood, and know they will continue to maintain our high standards for quality pre-finished hardwood flooring.”
