Bluegrass Wood Products Joins NWFA/NOFMA Wood Flooring Program
ST. LOUIS (April 12, 2024) – Bluegrass Wood Products is the latest company to earn NWFA/NOFMA Mill Certification from the National Wood Flooring Association.

NWFA/NOFMA certification assures a manufacturer’s wood flooring meets or exceeds industry standards for grade, configuration, moisture content, and average board length. Certified mills must meet rigorous production standards and are inspected a minimum of two times per year to ensure consistent grade standards are maintained.

“NWFA is pleased to welcome Bluegrass Wood Products as the newest NWFA/NOFMA member, “says Michael Martin, NWFA President & CEO. “Recent studies confirm that solid wood flooring has the lowest carbon footprint among all flooring types and has excellent long-term value. Consumers still demand quality however, and the NWFA/NOFMA certification assures they will get it.”

“Bluegrass Wood Products, formerly Southern Kentucky Hardwood Flooring, is the latest company to join the Merrick Group,” said Steve Merrick, President & CEO. “Merrick Hardwoods is a long-time member of the NWFA/NOFMA certified mill program. Having experienced first-hand the operational and marketing benefits the program provides, certifying Bluegrass was an easy decision for us.”
