Stauf USA, LLC is the newest member of the International Standards & Training Alliance (INSTALL).

The 180-year-old company operates its USA offices in Memphis, Tenn., and is regarded as the inventor of ready-to-use adhesive, in 1952, which changed the wood flooring industry, according to a statement from INSTALL. The company continues to research new and especially environmentally friendly products at its European adhesive faciility, using advanced computer technology and automation to limit costs, which are then passed on to contractors and retailers. Stauf joins 104 other members of the floorcovering industry as a member of the International Standards & Training Alliance.

“We are proud to partner with an industry leader such as Stauf USA,” said INSTALL Director, John McGrath. “Their expertise in wood flooring adhesives will be a great asset in our Alliance.”
