It is both visibly and tactically elevated, allowing for new opportunities and advantages in design and making for surfaces you’ll love at first sight and touch,” said Renee Hytry Derrington, Group VP of Design for Fletcher Building’s International Businesses Division, which includes Formica Corporation.
