History of Shaw Flooring
Shaw Flooring has more than 50 years of product expertise and experience, and is the largest brand in the Shaw Industries portfolio. Their carpet, laminate, luxury vinyl, hardwood, tile and stone flooring and solutions are founded in a culture of service, passion, and innovation. Headquartered in Dalton, Georgia, Shaw Industries Group, Inc. is the largest carpet manufacturer in the world with annual sales of more than $4 billion.
It all began when Clarence Shaw purchased a small dye company (Star Dye) which produced scatter rugs and bedspreads. When his sons Robert and J.C. took over, the company expanded production and began increasing sales significantly. They soon began carpet finishing under the name Shaw Industries. In 1967, J.C. created a holding company to acquire other carpeting companies like Philadelphia Carpet Company and Star Finishing. The company went public in 1971, by this time earning more than $43 million in annual sales. They first appeared in the Fortune 500 list in 1985.
In 1999, Shaw Industries merged with Queen Carpets and Cabin Crafts and Sutton, with the son of Queen founder Harry Saul becoming president of Shaw. Shaw Industries is now a subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway, Inc.
These days, Shaw Flooring believes your space should be comfortable, meaningful to you, and welcoming to others. They believe in creating flooring that makes a house feel like a home.
Shaw Flooring and Sustainability
Shaw Flooring knows that our planet provides the resources that create their gorgeous products, so they are committed to using those resources responsibly and respectfully. Every year, they release a sustainability report to continue their legacy of transparency. They focus on the ingredients that go into products as well as the impacts of sound, moisture, cleanability and other design considerations. This is because they know the spaces where we learn, create and come together to solve our greatest challenges impact our wellbeing, so they’re addressing environmental health and human experience at the same time.
