Tennessee-based McMinnville Manufacturing earns mill certification from National Wood Flooring Assn., North American Oak Flooring Manufacturers Assn.; NWFA president says demand for third-party quality assurance is growing
September 17, 2013
– McMinnville Manufacturing Company of McMinnville, Tennessee, has become the 18th active company to earn National Wood Flooring Association/North American Oak Flooring Manufacturers Association Mill Certification, according to a report by Hardwood Floors, the magazine of the National Wood Flooring Assn. in Madison, Wisconsin.
NWFA president and CEO said the growing number of companies achieving certification demonstrated increasing demand among manufacturers for third-party certification that demonstrates industry standards.
The certification provides assurance that the manufacturer’s wood flooring meets or exceeds the industry standards for grade, configuration, moisture content, and average board length, Hardwood Floors reported. Once certified, mills are inspected at least twice every year to ensure that consistent grade standards are being met.
