 M. BRUCE JONES NAMED PRESIDENT OF MANNINGTON RESILIENT FLOORS
 SALEM, N.J., Feb. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- M. Bruce Jones has been named president of Mannington Resilient Floors, a division of Mannington Mills, Inc., according to the company's president and chief executive officer, Scott Smith.
 Jones, 45, was previously Mannington's vice president of manufacturing, and was responsible for overseeing the division's manufacturing operations including production of both residential and commercial flooring. He also played a pivotal role as a member of the team originally put together by Tom McAndrews, in orchestrating Mannington's recent string of new product successes, including the introduction of the company's flagship product, Mannington Gold.
 "We believe that our new team approach to managing our business has given us the critical edge we need to take a leadership role in the resilient industry," said Smith.
 "In his new role, Bruce will be in charge of coordinating the activity of all the resilient team members, and there is no smarter or more talented group of people assembled anywhere in our industry today," said Smith.
 According to Smith, the team also includes: David Hartman, the head of residential marketing; Ed Duncan overseeing commercial marketing; Gary Anderson, head of sales; Santo Torcivia, research director; Stuart Beattie in charge of styling; and Sean Moffet of information services.
 "These people have taken the vision that Tom and I gave them, and are driving it with incredible success into the marketplace. And now with these new organizational changes, we are in an even stronger position to continue our planned series of aggressive new initiatives," said Smith.
 Jones has a formidable manufacturing background, consisting of assignments as a plant chemist and superintendent, director of research and development, and vice president of manufacturing, among others.
 He is also active in the Resilient Floor Covering Institute, an industry trade association, in which he has held a number of positions, including president, and vice president of the board of directors.
 Jones said his appointment reaffirms the company's dedication to furthering the marketing initiatives already firmly in place, and furthering the team-oriented management structure.
 "I'm delighted to have the opportunity to continue the progressive efforts that all of us in the Resilient Division have been involved with for a number of years now," Jones said.
 "I believe that our strength lies in the collective talent of our people. It's probably one of the most exhilarating times to be at Mannington, and I'm glad to be part of a future filled with exciting challenges for the industry."
 Jones has been with Mannington since 1971. He is a graduate of the University of Delaware with a degree in chemistry, and has completed advanced programs in executive management and computer science.
 He is a resident of Alloway, N.J., and is married with two children.
 Mannington Mills, Inc. is one of the largest floor covering manufacturers in the country, with more than 2,500 employees in the United States and Canada. The company is the only flooring manufacturer that sells ceramic tile, carpet, wood and resilient floors. Recently, Mannington expanded its commercial division by constructing two new plants, one for inlaid sheet vinyl and another for vinyl composition tile.
