Happy Feet International is expanding its offerings to include new products from Welspun Flooring. A portion of every Welspun sale will go toward the Floor Covering Education Foundation (FCEF). It was founded in 2019, primarily to address the shortage of installation craftsmen and the continued decline of qualified installers relevant to the demand for professionally installed flooring.
“Even with the heightened awareness in recent years of trade careers and their importance to our economy, flooring seems to still have limited awareness,” shared Jim Aaron, executive director of FCEF.
The FCEF currently offers scholarships to make training affordable. They are also working to ensure that flooring craftsman education is available in technical schools and other facilities across the nation.
Happy Feet International is a family-owned business that produces floors for every walk of life. Happy Feet offers the finest in luxury vinyl plank for today’s interiors, and they are constantly adding and updating new product styles, colors, and vinyl construction.
“It’s important to us that the high level of skill that goes into crafting Happy Feet flooring is met by highly trained installers,” said Casey Johnson, CEO of Happy Feet International. “We're happy to partner with Welspun to support the FCEF and increase training opportunities. When we elevate our craft, our whole industry succeeds.”
“It is extremely important to us to support the industry and ensure that we have the craftsman needed to install our products professionally,” said Amol Naravane, vice president, Welspun Flooring Ltd.
Through this program, Happy Feet International is also helping spread awareness about opportunities for profitable and sustainable trade careers. Flooring craftsmen are highly skilled and essential to the flooring industry.

“We are excited to have the support of Happy Feet International through Welspun’s giving program,” shared Aaron. “They are stepping up to do their part in ensuring that our industry is able to recruit talent and elevate the flooring installation trade by supporting quality installation training and job placement.”
