Mullican Flooring has long held the position that our natural resources should be valued and protected. Since the early 1990s, our company has incorporated conservation and sustainability practices into our manufacturing operations.
Approximately two decades ago, the concern surrounding properly managed forestlands led to the advent of new standards and regulations designed to safeguard these natural resources. Since then, new certification systems have led to the labeling of wood products so that consumers can easily identify which products are derived from managed forests. Mullican Flooring has consistently been at the forefront of industry support for and compliance with these movements.
Mullican’s commitment to sustainably managed forests does not end with harvesting timber; instead, it is carried through the entire manufacturing process. No part of a harvested tree goes to waste at a Mullican plant. The tree bark is processed into mulch. Wood chips are ground up and used for heating fuel at each of the company’s facilities in Johnson City, Tennessee; Norton, Virginia; Ronceverte, West Virginia; and Holland, New York. Sawdust is packaged and sold to particle board and decking manufacturers. Leftover wood blocks are made into charcoal.
