Mannington announced it will no longer be an approved Abbey supplier. Consequently, the company said it will support the membership "on a one-on-one basis."

"Mannington will continue to pay member rebates in accordance with existing policies to Abbey Corporate through June 30, 2010.  Mannington representatives will be contacting Abbey members on an individual basis to explore future alternative programs that are mutually beneficial," Mannington said.

“Mannington has enjoyed a great relationship with Abbey and its members for many years,” added Kim Holm, president of Residential Business, Mannington Mills. “As always, we strive to do the right thing and we’ll continue to work hard to earn the support of Abbey’s members.”
