PRESS RELEASE

Somerset Joins NWFA/NOFMA Factory Finished Solid Wood
Flooring Program

ST. LOUIS (October 18, 2019) – Somerset is the latest company to earn NWFA/NOFMA Mill Certification from the National Wood Flooring Association.

NWFA/NOFMA certification assures a manufacturer’s wood flooring meets or exceeds industry standards for grade, configuration, moisture content, and average board length. Certified mills must meet rigorous production standards, and are inspected a minimum of two times per year to ensure consistent grade standards are maintained.

“NWFA is pleased to welcome Somerset Hardwood Flooring as the newest NWFA/NOFMA Factory Finished member,” says Michael Martin, NWFA President & CEO.  “It’s encouraging to see the factory finished segment of the NOFMA Program grow right alongside the increased demand for factory finished products in the marketplace.  This is a clear indicator of the unification of our domestic manufacturers, and the continued value they see in the NWFA/NOFMA Program.”

A full list of NWFA/NOFMA certified manufacturers can be found on the NWFA website at http://nwfa.org/nofma-manufacturers.aspx.

“Somerset Hardwood flooring has a balanced product portfolio of both solid and engineered wood flooring products,” said Paul Stringer, Somerset VP of Sales & Marketing.  “We continue to see great potential in the solid sector, and certifying our factory finished products to the NWFA/NOFMA Program is an effective way for us to add value to our line and to communicate that to our customers.”

The National Wood Flooring Association is a not-for-profit trade organization, with more than 3,200 member companies worldwide, dedicated to educating consumers, architects, designers, specifiers and builders in the uses and benefits of wood flooring.
