Now in its 20th year, ADEX is a celebrated award competition for manufacturers in the interior furnishings industry.

The Gold winner was Colorfields – Thermoset rubber that brings spa-like attention to detail with exceptional color, durability, and comfort underfoot.

The Silver winners were:
Connected – sophisticated modular carpet that uses changes in texture and color to cue functionality and attitude in open, adaptive floor plans.<br>

“Design Journal and the ADEX Awards are known throughout the industry for shining the spotlight on beautiful and innovative products,” said Natalie Jones, VP – Commercial Brand Development and Creative Product. “We are delighted to be included in their list of top products from 2013, because ADEX is a reflection of what designers are looking for, of what they want to use in their projects.”

Mannington Commercial LVT Service Sets New Industry Standards

Mannington Commercial, a leader in flooring for commercial interiors, announces the most expansive LVT service program in the industry. The platform is responsive, tailored to the needs of customers, and backed with a guarantee – positioning the company to set new standards in delivering what customers need, when they need it.

“In recent years, we have seen designers and end users expect a contraction of time between when a product is specified and when it is installed,” said Mannington Commercial President Jack Ganley, “So we have taken practical measures to meet and exceed these expectations, expanding our customer service department, refreshing our quick ship programs, and on-shoring manufacturing of products back to American soil. This LVT Quick Ship program further enhances our ability to deliver, and our reputation for service.”

Mannington’s LVT Quick Ship has a range of 100 Amtico and Spacia products, all of which are available to ship within 5 business days. The company is so confident in their ability to deliver, that they offer a guarantee: if Mannington misses a shipment, they will discount that order by 10%.

As a fourth generation, family-owned company, Mannington is persuaded of the importance of manufacturing jobs for America’s economy and our future. Jobs build communities; when they disappear, so does our ability to stand strong and grow. So they are onshoring the manufacturing of their LVT from Asia, where most LVT is produced. In the past year, Mannington has already seen a 30% increase in jobs at its Georgia plants, and by 2015, expect to double their LVT manufacturing workforce.

The benefit of domestic manufacturing goes beyond jobs, however, also enabling the company to leverage LVT into new custom-cutting capabilities and deliver on the shorter lead times. Manufacturing here at home also means that Mannington can perform quality checks at every step of the manufacturing process, from raw material to finishing and shipping. These checks guarantee excellence with every delivery you receive, reduce the possibility of product failure, and help extend the legacy of quality and long-term performance specifiers have come to expect from Mannington.

“Our goal is not only to be easy to work with, but to anticipate and meet the demands that today’s customers have for immediate, quality delivery,” added David Sheehan, VP–Commercial Hard Surface.

Mannington is simultaneously leading the development of closed-loop reclamation and recycling of LVT. Earlier this year, the company successfully incorporated reclaimed, postconsumer LVT into new flooring, and are positioned to divert post-consumer LVT from landfills as it is taken up during renovation projects.
