Tandus Centiva- First in Sustainability

Tandus Centiva prides itself on a heritage of innovation and design leadership. We strive to create a legacy of superb quality and environmental excellence in our products and processes. Every day, we work hard to find new ways to be a little better than the day before in the hopes that every change, no matter how small or insignificant, will contribute to a continuous evolution of good within our organization and the communities in which we live and work.

With a history dating to 1803, Tandus Centiva has built a legacy on quality, performance, design and responsibility. Beginning in 1988, with the innovation of RS adhesive, product development began to consider the environmental impact of products, not just in manufacturing, but also in the use and after-use phases. In 1994, we launched the first closed-loop recycling program in the carpet industry, bringing old vinyl-backed tiles to Dalton and recycling them into new product, called ER3®. In 1996, Centiva became the first US manufacturer of commercial LVT, changing the game in resilient flooring. In 2010, we launched ethos®, a backing system made from 100% post-consumer recycled PVB, the safety film in windshields.
