Following the merger of Tarkett with the flooring activities of Sommer Allibert in 1997 to form a pure flooring company, Tarkett is one of the largest producers and distributors of resilient floorings world-wide.
In addition to this, Tarkett is also one of the leaders in the hardwood flooring (prefinished parquet) sector. With a global workforce of approximately 7,300 employees, Tarkett produces more than 250 million square metres of floor and wall coverings every year.
Tarkett with its more than 100 years of experience in the production of floorings focuses on resilient floorings (plastic floorings, linoleum), hardwood floorings (prefinished parquet) and a small segment of the textile flooring (needle-felt and tufting) market. Apart from this, laminated floorings are being produced and sold in a joint venture concluded in January 2000.
Today, the Tarkett Group is an innovative and global company, present in more than 50 countries and operating 25 production centres in 10 countries, 16 in Europe alone. World-wide, Tarkett operates more than 30 sales companies. Tarkett products have a world-wide reputation in the flooring industry.
