MFMA Mission Statement
The Maple Flooring Manufacturers Association (MFMA) is the authoritative
source of technical and general information about maple
flooring and related sports flooring systems. MFMA’s membership
consists of manufacturers, installation contractors,

product manufacturers who subscribe to established
quality guidelines. Through cooperative member programs,
MFMA establishes product quality,
performance and installation guidelines; educates end

maple, beech and birch flooring products worldwide.
Founded in 1897, the MFMA is the only authoritative source of technical information about hard maple flooring.

The Wood and Synthetic Flooring Institute (WSFI) was absorbed by the Maple Flooring Manufacturers Association on September 1, 1994. All assets, materials and members of WSFI were transferred to the MFMA. The Institutes' focus was to promote the use of wood and synthetic products in connection with institution, commercial, industrial, residential or sports flooring installations.
