"The Faus acquisition also provided the company with significant tax advantages and a superior manufacturing and distribution facility with over 380,000 square feet in Calhoun, Georgia," said chairman Lewis Gould.

"This provides the company with an opportunity to consolidate some of its operations within the Calhoun facility. This consolidation will continue throughout the coming year."

Gould said the laminate will help to round out its offering along, with its previous Harris Wood acquisition, so that it has wood, laminate and a comprehensive bundle of installation accessories.
