VT Industries’ Countertops Win ‘Greenguard’ Nod

Holstein, IA — VT Industries, the Holstein, IA-based manufacturer of postformed laminate countertops, has announced that its countertops are now “Greenguard” certified.

Both VT standard products and the company’s “EQcountertops” meet standards established by the Greenguard Environmental Institute (GEI), although EQcountertops perform to an even more stringent level of indoor air quality, suitable for schools, offices, hospitals and public buildings, the company said.

“With our postformed countertops being Greenguard-certified, we feel this is an added benefit for our customers,” observed Rick Liddell, senior v.p./sales and marketing.

“Our customers can now sell our countertops with confidence that they meet indoor air quality criteria," he added.
Greenguard-certified products meet acceptable indoor air quality standards, and are tested quarterly by the independent, non-profit GEI to maintain certification requirements.
