Mullican Flooring, a leading manufacturer of quality hardwood floors, has provided flooring to Wounded Nature – Working Veterans, a nonprofit charity that is dedicated to cleaning up America’s coastlines while employing veterans who are re-entering the civilian workforce.
Mullican contributed 900 square feet of 1/2-inch engineered oak flooring that is certified 100 percent Pure by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). Featuring a 5-inch width, the product will be installed in high-traffic areas of the organization’s headquarters in Charleston, SC.
“Wounded Nature – Working Veterans is in the process of restoring a house that had been vacant for six months and was in need of extensive repairs,” says Rudy Socha, CEO of Wounded Nature – Working Veterans. “I believe floors set the mood and tone for any property. We consider ourselves very lucky to have Mullican Flooring as a donation partner for this project. Their donation of high-quality and environmentally friendly flooring will help set a very positive mood for everyone who visits our headquarters.”
Each of Mullican Flooring’s four manufacturing plants holds the FSC chain-of-custody designation, showcasing the company’s commitment to promote and adhere to FSC-established principles of environmentally conscious management of forests around the world.
“Mullican’s partnership with Wounded Nature – Working Veterans makes sense given the commitment of both organizations to preserve our natural resources for future generations,” says Neil Poland, president of Mullican Flooring. “We have incorporated conservation and sustainability practices into our manufacturing operations for decades, resulting in extensive collections featuring diverse aesthetic appeal while protecting our forests. Mullican Flooring is excited to provide flooring to Wounded Nature – Working Veterans, an organization that shares our respect for the environment.”
Mullican ranks among the nation’s top five hardwood flooring producers and operates additional manufacturing facilities in Norton, VA; Holland, NY; and Ronceverte. The company manufactures and sells more than 1,500 products via a network of 40 distributors and 5,000 retail stores across the United States and Canada.
