FCICA, the flooring contractors association, and BNP Media are excited to announce a partnership that will allow the Flooring Contractor magazine to be distributed quarterly as a supplement to the digital edition of floor trends.

According to Senior Editor Kim Oderkirk, “Partnering with floor trends will allow The Flooring Contractor magazine to gain added exposure, which will attract industry support for our organization.  We can’t wait to see the first redesigned issue!”  The Flooring Contractor magazine is known for its commercial flooring focus and Oderkirk will retain her role as senior editor of the magazine.  BNP Media will take over the art, production and sales for The Flooring Contractor.

“FCICA is a vital and growing flooring association that directly targets installation managers and their businesses.  We are excited to partner with them on this new venture.  The Flooring Contractor will give our subscribers additional editorial coverage of the flooring industry from a unique viewpoint, and I have no doubt that we will both learn new things from each other.  This partnership is yet another example of our goal to support the flooring industry through unique and exclusive information, education and association partnerships,” stated Diana Brown, Group Publisher of floor trends and Floor Covering Installer.

Watch for the first issue of The Flooring Contractor magazine as a supplement to the September 2012 digital issue of floor trends.  The issue will also be available on the FCICA website.
