As part of its effort to broaden its domestic manufacturing footprint, Mullican Flooring has announced plans to bring full production of all sawn engineered products to the U.S. beginning early summer 2017.
“Since 2012 we have converted much of our engineered hardwood production from imported to domestic manufactured product,” said Neil Poland, president of Mullican Flooring. “The transition of our sawn lines to the U.S. is a natural extension of that movement. Further, we are looking at this change as part of our effort to improve efficiencies and long term value within the company. The move will allow us to tighten quality control as well as to stay true to a long-standing corporate commitment to support domestic production. The start-up of our sawn production line is the first phase of a 5-year expansion plan that will create 200 new jobs at our Johnson City production plant.”
The first product that will transition to the U.S. production facility is EuroSawn White Oak in a 7-inch width. The collection will be immediately available in 6 colors. Plans to transition additional overseas production to the U.S. will be announced in the third quarter.
