JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. – Mullican Flooring, a leading manufacturer of quality hardwood floors,has added its Ridgecrest Collection, an existing engineered product line, to its growing roster of Made-in-America products.
The company had previously offshored this segment of production to Asia. The Ridgecrest Collection joins four collections introduced in 2013 — Lincolnshire, Hillshire, San Marco and Ponte Vedra — that are also manufactured on U.S. soil.
“As a result of the success Mullican has seen with the production of the new engineered collections, it makes sense to move the Ridgecrest Collection to the U.S. as well,” says Brian Greenwell, vice president of sales and marketing for Mullican Flooring. “One of the most diverse collections offered by Mullican, the Ridgecrest Collection is a consumer favorite. Today’s consumers are looking for readily available Made-in-America products. Manufacturing Ridgecrest at the Johnson City plant will meet that demand.”
In 2012, Mullican moved to larger headquarters in Johnson City, Tenn., where it launched state-of-the-art equipment for manufacturing engineered hardwood floors for the first time on U.S. soil. The Ridgecrest Collection will be the first half-inch engineered product Mullican has manufactured in the United States. Offered in an array of oak, hickory and maple selections, Ridgecrest is available in 3- and 5-inch widths.
Notably, Mullican also manufactures hundreds of solid hardwood flooring products that are made in U.S. plants. Headquartered in Johnson City, Tenn., Mullican ranks among the nation’s top five hardwood flooring producers and operates additional manufacturing facilities in Norton, Va., Holland, N.Y., and Ronceverte, W.Va.
Mullican manufactures and sells more than 1,500 products via a network of 40 distributors and 5,000 retail stores across the United States and Canada. For more information about the company and its products, visit www.mullicanflooring.com.
