Mannington Celebrates Four Generations and 100 Years of Flooring
It’s been a century since John Boston Campbell opened a flooring factory in Salem, New Jersey. Four generations later—not to mention three catastrophic fires and two World Wars—his family’s Mannington Mills still calls Salem home.
Brand extensions have been critical to the company’s success. Consider the launch of Mannington Commercial, home to such nylon-centric wares as the Shimoda Design Group’s Traction Avenue planks; Bouclé, a textured patterned loop offered as broadloom or tile; and the four linear modular designs of Connected, which also comes as luxury vinyl flooring. Speaking of vinyl, that category exploded with the acquisition of Amtico International and now runs the gamut from the colorful configurations of Amtico Signature to the neutral arrangements of Amtico Design Woods.
That’s a lot to celebrate. And 450 friends and family members attended the Mannington centennial gala at Philadelphia’s National Constitution Center, an institution dedicated to history much older than Mannington’s. But just you wait.
