Mannington's Legato Attains USDA BioPreferred Certification
Calhoun, GA, October 27, 2022-Mannington Commercial announced that its Legato Liquid Linoleum flooring product has attained USDA BioPreferred certification from the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
The BioPreferred label signifies the company’s commitment to developing sustainable products designed for commercial and government projects.
