There is a Luxury Vinyl Shortage in the United States. This is mostly because of harmful practices in Chinese manufacturing facilities. But Florz carries a HUGE selection of LV Flooring sourced from facilities utilizing best practices. More importantly, we carry large quantities of flooring produced here in The United States! Furthermore, our great selection is in-stock and ready for immediate delivery.
Below is an excerpt from Flooring Covering News, which explains the luxury vinyl shortage:
The LVT category is facing a new crisis, this one emanating from the Uyghur Forced Labor Protection Act (UFLPA), which was passed into law by the U.S. government in 2022. UFLPA prohibits the importation of all goods that are produced in or contain any content from the Uyghur region in China—an area believed to house forced labor operations and is a major supplier of PVC and raw materials to China and the greater Asian region.
To enforce UFLPA, U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) has begun detaining all imported LVT that could potentially contain materials subject to UFLPA restrictions and is only releasing held shipments after clear and convincing evidence has been produced and confirmed that there is no violation of UFLPA.
Some flooring observers expect the UFLPA detentions to last for at least 30-60 days, perhaps longer. The hope is that once material is released it can be delivered quickly since product is sitting at East Coast ports in Customs. “The ironic part is that most of the larger LVT players have all the necessary documentation showing full chain of custody meeting the requirements, but apparently the issue is lack of readiness by U.S. Customs. It’s great that our government is addressing the forced labor issue; however, in passing the new law they once again failed to anticipate the unintended consequences of not being ready to administer it.
