New European Multilayer Association Formed

Munich, Germany, Nov. 5, 2012 -- Ten European flooring producers have launched a new association called the Multilayer Modular Flooring Association.

All multilayer products that have not found a home yet with the existing associations will now get the opportunity to have their interests represented under the new MMFA umbrella.

The MMFA will advocate technical features such as product standardization and nomenclature, as well as product information and promotion. It will also promote the idea of sustainability in the sector. The sphere of activities will cover all of Europe.

The stimulus for the launch came from the sector itself. Often flooring products are developed and introduced to the market, which are multilayer products by construction and composition and therefore do not fall into the categories of either laminate or elastic flooring.
