NOFMA: The Wood Flooring Manufacturers Association recently announced its latest report on hardwood flooring shipments. According to the report, shipments were down by 1 percent in June over the previous month, and down 2 percent in the first six months compared to the same six-month period a year ago. NOFMA said these figures are still strong, citing that last year's shipments reached the highest numbers seen in the industry since the 1960s, so a slight decrease is still comparatively high.
