LVT Floor Covering : Manufacturing / Production in USA

Excerpts from Floor Covering Weekly article by Kacey Perinelli Aug 2021

“Currently …70 to 75 percent of all flexible and rigid luxury vinyl tile (LVT) is currently made in Asia.”

Mohawk: “There are numerous advantages to domestic production, shared Ed Sanchez, vice president of product management, resilient for Mohawk. These include, he said, a short supply chain, no worry about the current lack of containers, short lead times and ability to control quality of product.”

Wellmade Floors ““The advantages are many, beginning with competitive and stable pricing, regardless of international tariffs,” said Steven Wagner, Wellmade’s director of sales and marketing, about domestic production. He said lead times and shipping costs are both reduced when ample domestic inventory is available.”

Shaw Floors “Shaw too noted lead times and supply chain stability as the most significant perks currently to manufacturing in the U.S.”

Mannington ““By manufacturing domestically, we are better able to meet the demands of our customers in both service and design”
