The European Producers of Laminate Flooring (EPLF) trade group has reported that its members logged sales increases in excess of 85% last year. The 2000 worldwide market share of EPLF members has reached 69%, according to data presented the association released during Domotex 2001 in Hanover, Germany.

The RAL-quality trademark for laminate flooring, which has become a quality certificate for laminate flooring throughout Germany, and the new Euro-Standard EN 13329 were the two important factors underpinning European producers’ 2000 performance, EPLF said.
