Boa-Franc, maker of the Mirage brand of hardwood flooring, said its products are in compliance with the Lacey Act, a U.S. wildlife protection policy which was recently amended to protect against illegal forest practices and the trade of such forest products. The company said complying with this law highlights “its progressive approach to sustainable development.”

“As a renowned leader and specialist in prefinished hardwood flooring, we made a decision at the very start to partner with responsible suppliers who have provided us with legally harvested natural resources for a number of years while adhering to best forestry practices,” said  Luc Robitaille, vp marketing for Boa-Franc. “We take great care in selecting the resources supplied to us.”

Products in the Mirage brand are made using natural resources from soundly managed and legally harvested forests, according to the company. “Our  compliance with this law is in line with steps that we have been taking for number of years now with supplier partners to make sure we offer only legally harvested wood,” Boa-Franc noted.
