The National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA) has announced that Lauzon Distinctive Hardwood Flooring in Papineauville, Quebec, has earned the NWFA/NOFMA Mill Certification.
“We are pleased to welcome Lauzon Flooring as the newest Canadian member of the NWFA/NOFMA Program,” says John Forbes, NWFA Manufacturer Services Director. “The NWFA/NOFMA Program was founded over 100 years ago, and the fact that certification continues to be a sought after differentiator, clearly demonstrates the vibrancy and relevancy of the designation.”
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. Certified mills are inspected a minimum of two times per year to ensure consistent grade standards are met.
“Our team at Lauzon is thrilled and very proud to receive the NWFA/NOFMA mark of distinction for wood flooring,” says Richard Ayuen, Lauzon Flooring Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Being certified means that all of our processes and our standards of quality meet our industry’s most stringent standards. This allows Lauzon to fulfill its promise of always delivering high-quality and value-added hardwood flooring to all of our customers.”
A full list of NWFA/NOFMA certified manufacturers can be found on the NWFA website.
Great. I wish we had more of this as it is difficult to figure out what a manufacturer’s grading standards are when they may be proprietary. Same holds true on trade names for species.
