AHF Moving Wood Flooring Production to WV, KY & TN, Closing PA Factory
Mountville, PA, September 1, 2022-AHF Products announced it will move manufacturing of select solid and engineered wood flooring products to its Beverly, West Virginia; Somerset, Kentucky; and Only, Tennessee facilities in the U.S and will be closing its factory in Titusville, Pennsylvania, where these products are currently made.
Production will stop in the Titusville location, which employs fewer than 100 people, on October 30.
This change to the manufacturing footprint comes after extensive internal and external market analysis to align with the company's ongoing efforts to simplify the business model while improving both profitability and competitive positioning. The Titusville plant represented under 1% of the company’s manufacturing capacity.
"Unfortunately, the more expensive local lumber costs and the lack of equipment to dry lumber onsite does not allow us to scale production," said AHF Products president and CEO Brian Carson.
In a separate statement, AHF Products has finalized the planned closing of its Oneida, Tennessee facility, a small facility which manufactures floor cleaners. The closure was announced in 2019 and is concluding October 2022. There are currently four employees at this facility.
