Tarkett Group leadership is the result of 130 years of flooring experience, thanks to the talent, values and commitment of generations of entrepreneurs. Initially known as Allibert and Sommer, the company’s story begins with the ideas, energy and commitment of its founding entrepreneurs. The rich legacy of people, values, expertise and ambition made Tarkett the company it is today; a company that reflects the spirit of these entrepreneurs in Europe and North America. They launched hardwood flooring in Sweden, linoleum in Canada, vinyl felt and backing in France. Tarkett has grown in strength by smoothly integrating industry leaders such as Desso, Sintelon, Johnsonite and FieldTurf and, more recently, Beynon, Fademac, Aspen, Centiva, MET, Marty and, in 2012, Tandus.
Tandus Centiva, a Tarkett Company has been in business as a soft surface flooring provider since 1964.

The Best Value flooring product is the one that meets the customers' needs. We work to balance the list of competing demands inherent in every project, from acoustics to indoor air quality to maintenance, so you can expertly recommend a flooring product for the specific needs of every space, in every segment. Tarkett's Solution SPECtrum allows you to choose from an incredible range of flooring solutions from resilient to soft surface to the accessories that pull it all together. Then coordinate colors, patterns and textures across all our product brands and platforms to create a seamless design throughout the floorplan. On top of the vast floorcovering options, Tarkett offers a turn key solution through our Source One department as well as carpet recycling at our Dalton facility.
An excellent example of our dedication to collaborating with our customers to meet their needs is the development of our ethos® backing. Our client, healthcare giant, Kaiser Permanente, was in search of a non-PVC commercial flooring product. Tandus Centiva partnered with Kaiser and developed ethos, the first and only commercial floorcovering made from postconsumer PVB film, an abundant waste stream recovered from windshields and safety glass recycling. Ethos products are Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Silver v3 and are fully recyclable at the end of their use in Tarkett’s Restart® reclamation program for flooring.
Other supplier partners include one of the largest financial institutions, an insurance company and a major sports retailer. Each of these clients returned over 1 million pounds of floor coverings that were recycled in our ReStart program. In addition, retail store Walmart has recycled more than 91 million pounds of flooring.
