European Resilient Flooring Manufacturers’ Institute
The European Resilient Flooring Manufacturers’ Institute (ERFMI) represents the interests of 17 manufacturers and distributors of resilient floor coverings across Europe and is the voice of the sector at the EU and national government levels. Resilient floor coverings are used in both commercial and domestic applications and can be made of Vinyl, Rubber, Linoleum, Cork, Polyurethane and Synthetic Thermoplastic Polymers. They are highly engineered to combine attractive design and colour with superior functionality. They are strong, comfortable to walk on, hygienic, easy to maintain and extremely durable.
Our key areas of focus are:
• Representing the industry in negotiations with government departments, public bodies, trade associations, non-governmental organisations and similar bodies in the European market on matters relating to the resilient flooring industry • Promoting the preparation of international standards, specifications and classification systems and their adoption • Working towards a Circular Economy for resilient floor coverings by researching and developing end of life options • Showcasing our members’ positive contribution to society by their perpetual design - lead innovation and quality leadership and sustainability programmes.
