Happy Feet International, a provider of luxury vinyl plank flooring based in Ringgold, Georgia, is expanding its offerings to include new products from Welspun Flooring, and a portion of every Welspun sale will go toward the Floor Covering Education Foundation (FCEF) to help address the shortage of installation craftsmen. 

“It’s important to us that the high level of skill that goes into crafting Happy Feet flooring is met by highly trained installers,” said Casey Johnson, CEO of Happy Feet International. “We're happy to partner with Welspun to support the FCEF and increase training opportunities. When we elevate our craft, our whole industry succeeds.”

The FCEF currently offers scholarships to make training affordable. They are also working to ensure that flooring craftsman education is available in technical schools and other facilities across the nation. 

“Even with the heightened awareness in recent years of trade careers and their importance to our economy, flooring seems to still have limited awareness,” shared Jim Aaron, executive director of FCEF. We are excited to have the support of Happy Feet International through Welspun’s giving program. They are stepping up to do their part in ensuring that our industry is able to recruit talent and elevate the flooring installation trade by supporting quality installation training and job placement.”
