The acquisition leverages market, product and sales synergies of both brands—a benefit to customers worldwide.

“On their own, Bentley and Balta are strong, iconic brands in their respective markets,” said Ralph Grogan, president of Bentley. “By strategically coming together, we’ll bolster our collective industry-leading commercial carpet tile offerings. On behalf of everyone at Bentley, we’re honored to be part of the Balta family and look forward to continued growth and innovation.”

Balta will tap into Bentley’s sales force and market power to accelerate growth of its European Modulyss carpet tiles in the U.S. Additionally, Bentley’s carpet tile lines will be sold worldwide through Balta’s expansive distribution network.

There are no expected changes in leadership, employees or geography for Bentley.
