The World Floor Covering Association (WFCA) announced that the Shaw Flooring Network (SFN) is joining its initiative to solve the installation crisis, expanding their collective voice in the industry.

The WFCA launched their “Be a Part of the Solution” campaign in December, the most concerted effort to address the greatest issue in the history of the floor covering industry and challenged manufacturers, suppliers, distributors, installers, retailers, and associations throughout the industry to join in the collaboration. “I am incredibly grateful that the Shaw Flooring Network is leading the way by joining this industry-wide effort,” said CEO of WFCA, Scott Humphrey. “As the Former Director, SFN will always hold a special place in my heart and in my life, and I am thrilled to know my friends and colleagues throughout the network believe in what we’re doing and are now an essential part of the solution.”

Known for its unwavering commitment to its members and their needs, the Shaw Flooring Network is championing WFCA’s initiative to support, educate, train, and grow the next generation of professionally trained installers. As part of the partnership, all Shaw Flooring Network members will be granted immediate and automatic membership into the WFCA, uniting and magnifying their voice to make a difference solving the most pressing problem facing the industry.

According to Dean Howell, SFN Dealer Council Member and WFCA Chair Elect, “The installation crisis is an issue we can’t solve as individuals. Our industry must work together. The SFN Dealer Council always looks for solutions that help make it easy for members to do more business. Helping find a solution to the installation crisis is the most important thing we could possibly do for them.”
