Following similar announcements from Armstrong and Mannington, Tarkett Commercial said it will raise prices on its commercial VCT flooring to help offset the higher costs of raw materials. Beginning July 1, Tarkett will increase prices on its VCT flooring by 5 percent.

“With energy costs at record levels and continuing to increase beyond our estimation or control, we must pass on a price increase on all our commercial VCT flooring,” said Gilles de Beaumont, president of Tarkett Commercial Tile. “We recognize how price increases affect our distributors’ business and plan to keep open communication with them regarding supply and demand concerns or with any changes in production costs.”

“Tarkett Commercial Tile will continue to develop technologies not only to further improve our products but to enable us to make them more efficiently,” he added.
