Cikel America LLC, the North American subsidiary of one the world’s largest vertically integrated forest products manufacturers, has announced a new distribution partnership with Patriot Flooring Supply, Inc. for the Northeast region. Patriot Flooring Supply, one of the largest wholesale distributors of hardwood flooring in the Northeast, with locations in Wilmington, MA and Pompton Plains, NJ, will support Cikel sales from Delaware to Maine.

Cikel owns more than one-million acres of timberland in Brazil and has earned a total of seven certificates from the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), ranging from responsible harvesting and manufacturing to the final hardwood flooring product.

“Cikel makes a very high quality product,” said John Salvador, at Patriot Flooring Supply in Pompton Plains. “We like to offer a package, or a reason for our customers to want to do business with us, and Cikel fits very nicely into that model. They offer Patriot the opportunity to offer our customers exotic hardwood flooring that is sustainably harvested and will keep them in complete compliance with the Lacey Act.”
