Missouri Hardwood Earns NWFA/NOFMA Certification
Missouri Hardwood has earned National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA)/NOFMA Mill Certification.
“This program is designed to recognize mills that voluntarily commit to meeting and exceeding industry standards for flooring appearance and performance. It ensures the high quality today’s consumers have grown to expect,” said Michael Martin, NWFA's president and CEO.
The company, which has been in business since 1911, manufactures ¾-inch solid flooring in widths ranging from 2¼-to 5-inches. It specializes in native Missouri species, including red oak, white oak, hickory and walnut.
“Missouri Hardwood is pleased to rejoin NOFMA after nearly a 10 year absence,” said Jeff Davis, vice president of marketing, for Missouri Hardwood. “We have a long history with NOFMA and pride ourselves in attention to detail. Our customers appreciate our precise milling and the color and hardness of our lumber. Having continuous membership from the early 1930s thru 2006 has made NOFMA part of the culture and heritage at Missouri Hardwood. We are proud to be a member of the organization again. The NWFA/NOFMA certification is another way to show that we are committed to our products.”
NWFA/NOFMA certification shows that a manufacturer’s wood flooring meets or exceeds the industry standards for grade, configuration, moisture content and average board length, according to Martin. Certified mills are inspected a minimum of two times per year to ensure consistent grade standards are met.
