Tarkett Residential has expanded its distribution base by adding Mount Vernon, New York-based Norman D. Lifton Company as a flooring distributor in the Tri-State area.

Lifton, which has been a long-time distributor for Tarkett’s Johnsonite brand, will provide sales and service capabilities for Tarkett’s residential products, including Fiber Floor and Vinyl Sheet (felt-backed) resilient, Laminate and NAFCO flooring.

Lifton will provide services to Tarkett’s flooring retailers in the Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Southeast Pennsylvania and Delaware regions.

“We see adding Lifton to our distribution base as a terrific opportunity for us to further promote our performance-based products in one of the most populated areas of the United States,” said Bill Cralley, Tarkett Residential president. “Lifton is a well-known and long-time established distributor in the Tri-State area, and we look forward to a strong relationship in adding to our ever-growing market presence.”
