    New Finishing Line Enhances Lumber Liquidators' Production Capability

    Company's Virginia investment will boost quantity and quality of hardwood flooring

    Apr 8, 2015

    TOANO, Va., April 8, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Lumber Liquidators (NYSE: LL), the largest specialty retailer of hardwood flooring in North America, has invested approximately $5 million in a state-of-the-art finishing line in Toano, Va., that more than doubles the production capacity – and further enhances the quality – of its hardwood flooring.

    This investment – along with the Company's recently completed 1 million square foot distribution center – underscores Lumber Liquidators' growth in and commitment to its home state of Virginia, where the Company has invested more than $60 million in the past year and now has more than 500 employees. Features of the new finishing line also support important elements of Lumber Liquidators' value proposition.

    One element of the value proposition enhanced by the new finishing line is the warmth and beauty that quality hardwood flooring brings to any home. Lumber Liquidators can now produce in Virginia more flooring that reflects in-demand style trends such as handscraped and wire brushed looks. This is made possible by innovation including the "effects machine" – a system that catalogs surface characteristics for consistent replication on products. The new finishing line also ensures consistent quality with its precise hardwood curing process, performed while removing small particles trapped in the surface layer.

    Another element of the new finishing line is increased efficiency that ultimately creates lower prices for Lumber Liquidators customers. It boasts an automated packaging station that reduces labor cost and completion times. By broadening the options of how bundles of wood can be received by the line, a new vacuum stacker also gives Lumber Liquidators leverage to source materials – with approximately 50 percent being sourced from North America – from more suppliers.
