AGT (Advanced Technology in Wood Industry) is an internationally recognised leader in the production of interior wood products and wood laminate flooring. The company complies with international standards of trade within the wood laminate sector and is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council for the sustainability of materials.

AGT was founded in 1984 and has grown from strength to strength. The company has an international footprint, exporting from its state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Turkey across the globe to over 60 stores spanning five continents. AGT embraces three core tenets within its business model: it values people, encourages innovation and considers its impact on the environment. Finfloor chose AGT because their philosophy of doing business is close to Finfloor’s heart.

1. AGT is people focused

People are one of the driving principles behind the company’s core ethos. AGT puts people first in every aspect of its product and service. The company prioritises health throughout all of its processes, from raw materials through to production, from the occupational health and safety of its employee base to the health and satisfaction of its end users. Valuing people includes valuing company stakeholders and extends to the after-sales service and the technical support that is offered on each and every one of its products. Giving value to people is what has helped this company grow into an industrial force numbering over 1000 people.

2. AGT is development and quality focused

AGT maintains their superior positioning by placing extreme importance on product and process innovation. AGT strives to offer the best solution to any challenge, and backs it up with a 100% quality guarantee. The company is constantly involved in research and development, continually improving production techniques to stay in line with cutting edge, world-class technology. Today, AGT own 327 product-based trademarks and 19 patents, a clear indication of their focus on staying ahead of the curve.

3. AGT cares about the planet

AGT sees leaving a liveable, clean world to the next generation as its duty.

AGT as a business remains future-focused, which involves considering the future of the planet for generations to come. Their environmental policy is to comply with all laws and regulations to protect the environment and ensure its sustainability. The company aims to reduce its carbon footprint and keep its impact on the environment under control, striving to reduce its effect on the environment by continuously improving its performance.

AGT is a global leader in ethical business, valuing people, performance and the planet at the heart of everything they do: the triple bottom line. These core principles resonate with Finfloor as a company, so Finfloor has put its stamp of approval on the AGT Natura line, backing it up with their 5-year commercial and 15-year residential guarantee.
