STODDARD, N.H.--Carlisle Wide Plank Floors, a 47-year old luxury brand that manufactures wood flooring with luxurious finishes, hand sculpted designs and thoughtful personal touches, today announced its strategic distribution strategy to expand into the fast-growing China market. The expansion calls for Carlisle to open 8 showrooms by year-end, with showrooms currently open in Wuxi and Nantong. The showrooms will be located in high-end communities throughout the country including Liuzhou, Kunming, Wulumuqi, Chong Qing, Nanjing and Shenzhen.

“Our expansion allows us to increase our presence through strategic partnerships and cater to new consumers who desire luxury solid wood flooring products.”

“The Chinese market represents tremendous growth opportunities for us as a luxury retailer offering high-quality flooring products,” said Michael Stanek, CEO of Carlisle Wide Plank Floors. “Our expansion allows us to increase our presence through strategic partnerships and cater to new consumers who desire luxury solid wood flooring products.”
