                             2022 is All About You
                             It’s time to turn the page on your 2021 calendar and move swiftly into 2022. The year
                             2022 is All About You! Looking back at 2021, the industry saw many successes and
                             failures. The flooring category was busy in 2021. Unfortunately, it could have been more        This isn’t
                             of a banner year if product shortages/delays and supply line issues had not impacted
                             the residential and commercial markets. Still, we have much to be thankful for. The year
                             2022 will be bright for you and the industry.

                             properly install each job leads to the prosperity of retailers/contractors, distributors        a solution
                             and manufacturers within the industry. You, the installer, are constantly faced with  learning new skills to ultimately guarantee a top-quality job for the customer. And you
                             challenge yourself to learn these new skills and grow your earning potential.

                             You, the retailer/contractor, sell the residential or commercial flooring project.
                             Whether tract work, replacement, main street, residential or commercial, you look for
                             opportunities to grow your business and status within your community by delivering
                             top-quality, cutting-edge products on-time and on budget.
