Abraham Linc and IVC US executives pose together after signing a distribution deal. They include: Darren F. Abraham, Abraham Linc's president and CEO; Xavier Steyaert, IVC US's president and CEO; Thomas Van de Cruys, IVC US's vp marketing/sales; and Terry Warne, Abraham Linc's vp marketing/sales.

Bridgeport, W. Va.-based distributor Abraham Linc is now marketing and distributing the IVC US line of glass-back vinyl products in the Virginias, Pennsylvania and western Maryland. According to Abraham Linc, the partnership with the resilient maker is a "good fit."

“We know our dealers want more value added to the products they buy," said Darren F. Abraham, president and CEO of Abraham Linc. "Abraham Linc is committed to offering cutting edge, yet practical, flooring products like IVC’s Flexitec and Level Plus collections."

Xavier Steyaert, president and CEO of IVC US, said the partnership will help both companies grow their business. “Our shared ambition with Abraham Linc is to win and sustain our reputation with customers for innovative, well-differentiated products and service excellence," he said. "Looking to the future, we both plan to grow our business and reach more customers. Our investment will be in even better and innovative products."

IVC makes 13' 2" residential and light commercial cushion-backed sheet vinyl under the Flexitec and Level Plus names. According to Abraham Linc, the 13' 2" size represents a wider width and "an added selling feature" to the program. IVC's fiberglass-backed products offer the look of hardwood and stone in a durable flooring that "does not curl, contract or expand," according to the distributor.

The Level Plus line, which is aimed at builders and property managers, offers a range of "small to large stones and basic wood patterns." Level Plus is engineered to meet FHA requirements, Abraham Linc notes.
