Distribution during the Pandemic
In her article, Distribution keeps business churning, Amy Rush-Imber from Floor Covering Weekly, interviews Kevin Gammonley, the Executive Vice President of the North American Association of Floor Covering Distributors (NAFCD), to look into the impact that the current pandemic has had on the state of the flooring marketplace.
The flooring industry has been greatly impacted as a whole by the COVID-19 pandemic, which has caused a downturn in distributors’ business. The depth of the impact has varied on a state-by-state level, with the highest impact seen in the Northeast and Midwest regions. Supply chain has been affected with delays in material from manufacturing plants. Throughout this disruption, the NAFCD has put in place systems including webinars, video series, reports and analysis, as well as holding virtual town halls to give distriutors transparency on the ever changing situation as well as a unique way to connect with eachother, to navigate these new set of challenges.
How we’re doing it well:
Swiff-Train Company is part of the NAFCD. During this difficult time we are committed to our customers, and striving to be as transparent as possible to ensure that our customers are taken care of in the way that they are accustomed to. We know that times are tough, but we also know that we will make it through this together.
