Roppe has informed its distributors that the company’s recent purchase of Tuflex Rubber Flooring will result in a significant expansion to its product portfolio. The Fostoria, Ohio-based manufacturer used the recent Floor Installation Association of North America meeting in Dallas to introduce 234 new rubber flooring colors and an updated marbleizing process.

According to Roppe Holding Co.’s marketing manager Jeremy Whipple, Tuflex flooring is non-porous, 99 percent recyclable and nearly maintenance free. These characteristics make the product “suitable for locker rooms, industrial/commercial kitchens and more,” he said.

The new Tuflex line and rubber flooring colors with marbleized options were scheduled to begin shipping in mid-November.
