Ed Weith and Greg Elsen, both formerly of Ohio Valley Flooring, have recently signed an employment agreement with the option and intent to ultimately purchase Dealers Supply North (DSN) at a later date. This follows plans between Mannington and DSN to place ownership of the company back in the hands of an entrepreneur.

"We're very happy with this arrangement," said Mark Hollinger, vice president of Mannington's distributor network. "It will allow us one day to put Dealers Supply North back in the hands of private ownership, and at the same time rapidly grow our business."
