Forbo Flooring Systems enters distribution agreement with Centura Tile

Forbo and Centura are proud to announce they have signed a distribution agreement on certain commercial vinyl lines – lines that Forbo currently does not carry in the Canadian market.

Forbo Flooring Canada Corp, part of the Swiss Forbo Group, will continue to directly market and distribute their core focus products, such as their flagship Marmoleum sheet and tile linoleum products, their Flotex sheet and tile textile products, their Eternal Wood and Step vinyl products, their Allura HQ Luxury Vinyl Tile products and their complete offering of Entrance Matting solutions.

In addition to aforementioned products, Forbo manufacturers a wider range of products which do not fit Forbo’s own strategy for the Canadian market, but which greatly complement Centura’s resilient offering. Part of Centura’s Forbo offering are Nordstar Evolve, a phthlalate-free homogeneous vinyl sheet product line in three different modern colour groups and a total of 60 colours, and various compact and acoustic heterogeneous vinyl sheet products such as Sarlon, a safety vinyl range called Surestep Star and even a vinyl for wet room (wall) application called Sarlibain.

“We are very excited about the opportunity to be working together with Centura,” says Dennis Darragh, general manager for Forbo Flooring Systems in North America. “This partnership allows us to offer even more of Forbo’s flooring products in the Canadian market. Centura is a very well-respected company in the flooring market, which owes its success to its outstanding customer service and quality product offering.”

As Ross Keltie, Centura’s V-P of Sales & Marketing puts it, “Centura is also very excited that we are partnering with Forbo Flooring Systems. This will allow us to deliver new and exciting products in the Vinyl flooring category. These products, which will be sampled throughout our 14 locations nationwide, will include exciting innovations in the homogenous and heterogenous vinyl floor categories that we think you’ll find very interesting.”

Centura Tile is a Canadian-owned, full-line flooring distributor with more than 80 years of experience in the Canadian market. The company employs more than 500 Canadians in our strategically located branches across the country.
