Product Certifications and Compliance Update
Mar 04, 2015

We feel it’s important to arm each of our retailers with the information needed to show customers that the products that Bishop distributes are quality materials that meet or exceed all necessary standards. Each of our retailers should feel confident in the materials that we sell at Bishop Distributing. Homeowners should also feel assured that your products are safe for their home each time they step up to a display.

 

While the recent feature on 60 minutes was meant to show the unethical practices of certain laminate flooring made in China, it also cast a bit of a negative light on import material in general. It is important to note that all manufacturers that Bishop is aligned with, both foreign and domestic, are up to par.
