Novalis Celebrating 35 Years of Business

Dalton, GA, August 8, 2023-August 8, 1988 is a special date in Novalis Innovative Flooring history, marking the anniversary of the day that the first container of LVT left China bound for the United States.

In the 35 years since, the global flooring manufacturer has taken its place as a leader in the flooring industry. Novalis now boasts 50 export destinations across six continents. 

While the inception of the business came in 1984 by the company’s founder, Dr. Z.L. Wu, the first export from China to the U.S. has continued to be celebrated as a momentous event for the Wu family, Novalis employees, and its customers. His children, John and CC Wu, now sit proudly at the helm. 

In 2023, Novalis has been honored with multiple awards worldwide for its commitment to sustainability and transparency in the flooring industry, including recognition of the development of Digital Product Passports. Throughout its history, Novalis has achieved success in developing sustainable manufacturing practices and healthier products, with gold-standard industry certifications for ingredient transparency, environmental impact, indoor air quality, and more.
