January 25, 2018
Over a three-year period, Tarkett will be investing $60 million to increase production capacity at two manufacturing facilities based in Florence, Alabama.
This expansion addresses significant demand growth for Tarkett’s luxury vinyl modular flooring. Additionally, Tarkett will build a new distribution center in Florence. These operations are expected to create an additional 50 jobs.
“These investments will strongly optimize our equipment, increase our local luxury vinyl tile [LVT] production capacity, improve our supply chain efficiency, and enhance our customer service,” said Jeff Fenwick, President, Resilient, Tarkett North America. “This is a strong signal of Tarkett’s commitment to long-term growth and sustainability in North America.”
Tarkett’s investment demonstrates the company’s ongoing commitment to efficient, sustainable manufacturing. Continuous upgrades at the Florence manufacturing sites have strengthened sustainability efforts by significantly reducing both energy used and waste generated during production.
