Overview & History

 
Mohawk Industries is one of the foremost manufacturers and distributors of residential and commercial flooring in the world. We enjoy leading market positions across multiple flooring categories, including carpet, ceramic tile, stone, wood and rugs in the United States and laminate in the U.S. and Europe. Mohawk dates its roots to the 1800's when it became one of the first American carpet manufacturers. Today, the Company is headquartered in Calhoun, Georgia with operations on three continents.
 

 

Our Business Strategy For Growth

By Design: Hardwood brings the warmth of nature into the home for a polished look.

During the past two decades, Mohawk has evolved from a leading North American carpet manufacturer into a global flooring company. This evolution reflects the Company’s commitment to constantly keep pace with consumer flooring preferences. Today, Mohawk’s product portfolio covers the market – extending across all flooring categories, styles and price points in order to satisfy the needs and tastes of consumers, builders and designers creating beautiful spaces.

Our operating strategy is based on vertically integrated operations in which we control both the forward and backward functions associated with product manufacturing and distribution. In our soft surface businesses, we control manufacturing for our broadloom product line, carpet pad and carpet backing, as well as providing fiber extrusion for much of our capacity requirements. We also manufacture the majority of our wood, laminate and ceramic tile products.

In North America, we manage a distribution network of transportation, warehousing and logistics assets. This infrastructure enables us to realize considerable economies of scale and resources in order to distribute our products efficiently to more than 28,000 customers that include independent specialty stores, home centers and contractors.

Acquisitions have played an important role in Mohawk’s growth and category expansion. During the past 20 years, we have completed more than 20 acquisitions, including Dal-Tile (2002), Unilin (2005) and the Columbia wood flooring business (2007).
