Johnson City, Tenn. -- Mullican has announced a new partnership with Building Plastics (BPI), a wholesale floor covering and decorative surfaces distributor. Through this partnership, Mullican aims to establish a greater market presence in the Tennessee, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Arkansas, Alabama and eastern Oklahoma territories.

“BPI is an elite distribution company in the flooring industry, and we are happy to have them represent the Mullican brand throughout their system,” said Neil Poland, president of Mullican. “With their tremendous sales growth in hardwood flooring, we know that this partnership is the perfect next step for us.”

BPI, a Memphis, Tenn.-based company, began with eight employees in a 7,500-square-foot warehouse facility and has expanded operations to eleven states and more than 450 associates.

“Mullican Flooring offers a vast line of American-made products, and our strong dealer base of 6,700 will certainly benefit,” said Sam Martin, vice president of sales and marketing for BPI.
