Buchanan Hardwoods Gets NWFA Certification
St. Louis, MO, July 11, 2014 -- The National Wood Flooring Association said that Buchanan Hardwoods, of Aliceville, Alabama, has earned the NWFA/NOFMA Mill Certification for its Elite Flooring.
Buchanan entered the flooring business in 1999, though it has been in the lumber industry for 75 years. The company owns or manages 100,000 acres of timber land in the South, sourcing its hardwood timber for lumber and flooring production from the Tombigbee River Basin in Alabama to the Appalachian Mountains.
The certification shows that a manufacturer’s wood flooring meets or exceeds the industry standards for grade, configuration, moisture content, and average board length. Certified mills are inspected a minimum of two times per year to ensure consistent grade standards are met.
