In 2012, as part of the mission to offer "floors beyond expectations," Kährs Group acquired Upofloor, an industry pioneer in resilient flooring. Upofloor is now being brought fully under the Kährs brand, and going forward, the Upofloor brand will become part of the Kährs product offering as "Kährs Upofloor." While the name of the Upofloor brand is changing, the products will remain the same: high-performing, extremely durable, aesthetically bold, and environmentally friendly.
