About ErfurtMAV Our History, Our Future In 2005, the UK company of McMullen and Valentine (MAV) joined forces with the German Company of Erfurt & Sohn, trading as Erfurt MAV in the UK. The senior management of Erfurt/MAV have over seventy five years of experience in the industry between them and a deserved reputation for high quality wallcoverings; Erfurt & Sohn, a family owned business since 1827, have a similar reputation throughout the world. One of the most important developments for the company came in 1864, when Hugo Erfurt, grandson of the company founder, developed a new product which ultimately evolved into ERFURT's Wood Texture Wallcovering. This product has sold globally and is now one of Europe's most popular Wallcoverings. Erfurt & Sohn maintain regional offices in France, Belgium, Switzerland, Poland and Russia, as well as a factory in the UK and Agencies around the globe. Despite the company's success, it still remains essentially a family-run company, with the great-great-great-great-great-grandsons of Friedrich Erfurt, (Martin and Henrik Erfurt), now in charge. The company exports to thousands of stores across Europe and has been awarded honours in recognition of its environmental achievements over many decades (such as the prestigious Blue Angel award) and in recognition of its Quality Management, such as the ISO 9001 certification. What this means is that you can rely on ErfurtMAV to supply goods and services that meet your expectations, and that those goods are as environmentally-friendly as possible. To ensure the success of ErfurtMAV, we continue to move forward through innovation - building on our extremely successful Wallrock brand and traditional lining ranges by introducing innovative products such as Thermally Efficient wallpapers and panels, sound insulation, digital print base papers, adhesives and wallcoverings specifically for use on exterior applications Environmental Policies Rest assured that all our products use paper from well managed sources, the vast majority either having FSC, PEFC or Blue Angel Accreditation, including our range of 100% recycled paper products 'Naturplus'. An increasing number of our products are being accredited as suitable for allergy sufferers such as 'Naturplus' and 'Wallrock Thermal Liner'. Andy Simpson Managing Director ErfurtMAV hold the prestigious 'Blue Angel' award, in recognition for their work in developing environmentally friendly recycled products. For your safety and that of the world around us, their Wood Texture products have been certified as non-polluting by the ISEGA Institute in Germany. It's another assurance that you're taking part with us in helping the environment by choosing ErfurtMAV paper products and the 10elements range.ErfurtMAV wallpaper is just that - it's made for your walls and it's made from paper. No glass fibres, no PVC and no toxins, without compromising on strength. In fact the Wallrock brand is synonymous with the strongest papers in the market. We source raw materials from sustainable forests, such as those backed by the FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) or the PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification). Two independent environmental organisations - one vision, shared by ErfurtMAV. PVC is made form crude oil, contains chlorine and is virtually impossible to recycle. Excluding 'Expanded Vinyl' (which is made on an FSC base paper and is as environmentally-frienldy as possible), none of the products contains PVC. ErfurtMAV have launched their range of 4 'Natureplus' products manufactured from 100% recycled material. You can learn more here and also take a look at the other 'Nature' products including 'Natureboss' and 'Naturerock'.
