Tarkett Streamlines Sales Support for FEMA & Emergency Response

Solon, OH, April 3, 2020 -Tarkett has mobilized to streamline the process for FEMA contractors and other emergency response organizations to procure essential flooring products for use in healthcare and government facilities. 

By establishing a dedicated concierge line to quickly facilitate orders and continually evaluating its manufacturing operations to meet ever-changing demands, Tarkett is committed to supporting the recovery effort and getting products where they are needed most.

The needs of healthcare and government contractors are rapidly changing in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Through its own internal responses to this health crisis, Tarkett has positioned itself to safely continue providing flooring solutions that are well suited to address needs such as infection control and rapid occupancy.

Through the following adjustments to its normal operations, Tarkett is equipped to support FEMA’s COVID-19 approach of preservation, allocation, acceleration and expansion:

* Preservation: Continually monitoring inventories of resilient and soft surface products, prioritizing those inventories for the immediate need

* Allocation: Allocating those inventories once immediate needs are determined

* Acceleration: Directing manufacturing resources to produce those products where inventories are being depleted

* Expansion: Increasing manufacturing capabilities to meet the increased demand as this pandemic continues its aggressive path
