Tarkett Merges Tandus, Centiva Divisions
January 24, 2013
Whitehall, Pa.-based Tarkett is combining its Tandus and Centiva divisions in order to market and support soft surface and luxury vinyl tile (LVT) solutions in the commercial market. “The 2012 acquisition of Tandus was completed with the vision of delivering a full portfolio of products and services across soft and hard surface to commercial specifiers and end-users,” said Jeff Buttitta, president of Tarkett North America. “For several months, I have been working closely with Thomas Trissl, president of Centiva, and Glen Hussmann, president of Tandus, regarding how we capitalize on the substantial strengths of their respective companies.” Trissl has announced he will leave Centiva, effective March 31. He will remain as president of Centiva until his departure, after which Glen Hussmann will serve as president of both Tandus and Centiva.
