In March of 2019, ROKplank Inc. will become one of the first manufacturers to produce SPC (Stone Polymer Composite) flooring in the USA. With the constant threat of trade disputes, and the need for America to expand its manufacturing capabilities, we've stepped up to establish the first of its kind factory in the USA. With latest technology machinery and strategic partnership with our American raw material suppliers, we will bring a viable alternative to Asian imports.
Although our factory will be brand new, our experience in manufacturing dates back to 2005. With our roots in natural stone production, we have been quarrying and processing marble and travertine for almost 15 years. Since 2005, we have produced over 70 million square feet of tiles, mosaics and wall cladding in our factories in Turkey. Now we have expanded our production into SPC. Our investments in Cartersville, GA and in Bursa, Turkey will allow us to produce a total of 36 million square feet of SPC annually. With a combined area of 380,000 sqft in manufacturing facilities, equipped with the latest automated machinery, ROKplank will become one of the key suppliers of SPC flooring to the North American market.
ROKplank Inc. will debut its collection of 40 colours of SPC at the upcoming 2019 Surfaces show in Vegas! We look forward to seeing you at booth #702.
