NORWALK, CT, Jan. 15 – Metroflor Corp. announced that it has formed a partnership with Shnier, a leading Canadian floor covering solutions company, to distribute ASPECTA, the LVT leader’s new global contract brand. The range will bring a new dimension to flooring for the Canadian A & D community with its 100-strong collection of 52 wood, 33 stone and 24 abstract designs, all enhanced by the most authentic textures on the market.

ASPECTA gives Shnier a comprehensive commercial LVT program, with superior visuals and technical attributes, ideally fitting with Shnier’s D9 commercial sales efforts.
