What We Stand For

Formica Group has a proud heritage, supported by a strong brand.

Formica Group’s vision is to be the leading decorative laminate company worldwide. This vision is supported by core values which will help us to continue to lead the market both through innovation and with a design-focused approach.

We aim to be the customer’s first choice to do business with and to build close and mutually beneficial relationships with our customers, suppliers and partners. Ensuring marketplace and customer satisfaction are the driving forces behind all we do, we understand that listening to our customers is important.

We have regular communication with design leaders and consumers, which helps us to produce products that are fit for purpose and meet market demands.

As a global manufacturer, the environment is an important factor in our daily manufacturing and distribution decisions. Formica Group is committed to safeguarding the Earth’s natural resources, by using paper from recycled sources and sustainable softwood forests.

Paper accounts for approximately 70% of the makeup of a sheet of laminate and therefore our procurement policy is one of sourcing raw materials from responsible vendors using managed renewable sources. We have been awarded Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC) Chain of Custody Certification for all our manufacturing sites and distribution centres in Europe.

GREENGUARD® certification has been achieved worldwide for all of our manufacturing plants. Formica® products are therefore entitled to carry the GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certified® label, which signifies that products contribute minimally to chemical emissions and help create healthier indoor environments.

           

This achievement ensures that architects, designers, specifiers and other purchasers, wherever they are located, are assured that Formica products are healthy options for workplace or domestic environments.

We recognise that in today’s world, things do not stand still and we strive to continually develop and evolve to provide the products and service that our customers need.
