Formica Group marks 100 years and enters a year-long global celebration of its past, present and future impact on residential and commercial design.

“For 100 years, Formica brand products have touched every aspect of our lives, each and every day, by surfacing millions of spaces in which we gather, work, learn, heal, shop, eat and play,” said Mark Adamson, former CEO of Formica Group and current CEO of its parent company, Fletcher Building. “The world has grown up with Formica brand laminate. We look forward to topping millions more surfaces for generations to come.”

For its 2013 anniversary, Formica will release a Laminate Anniversary collection, featuring 12 new graphic patterns based on the brand and its history. A celebratory book, Formica Forever, which chronicles 100 years of history, design, cultural impact and business expansion, will also be available mid-2013.

“All elements of our anniversary celebration pay homage to the making of an iconic brand,” said Paul Zuckerman, president of Fletcher Building’s Laminates & Panels Division, which includes Formica Group. “As the brand turns 100, we’re looking back on a century of invention, business endurance and achievement. It’s quite a story.

”The Formica Group Anniversary collection debuted in North America on January 22 at the 2013 International Builders’ Show. For more information about Formica’s anniversary, click here.
