All of Tarkett North America’s plants (including Johnsonite), have received ISO 14001:2004 certification. The ISO standard sets out the requirements for an Environmental Management System (EMS), including prevention of pollution, continual improvement, and compliance with national and local regulations.

“To have all Tarkett factories in North America ISO 14001 certified is a great accomplishment and shows the dedication and hard work of our team to ensure that our corporate philosophy of better resource stewardship is not only met, but exceeded,” said Diane Martel, Tarkett North America’s vp environmental planning and strategy.

Tarkett operates six manufacturing plants in North America, in Houston; Florence, Ala.; Middlefield, Ohio; Chagrin Falls, Ohio; Waterloo, Ontario; and Farnham, Quebec.
