133 years of Mohawk innovation
It all started in 1878, when four Shuttleworth brothers brought a shipment of 14 secondhand looms from the UK over to New York. From these humble beginnings, demand for our carpet has steadily grown. With numerous innovations over the years, Mohawk has helped shape the flooring industry as we know it today. Our products have touched lives in countless spaces – from homes and schools … to hotels, offices, hospitals, and more. Mohawk is deeply woven in to the story of modern-day flooring.
Today, we’re the industry leader and the world leader. With 133 years of innovation, ingenuity, and hard work from dedicated employees propelling the company forward, Mohawk has become one of the most successful flooring companies on the planet. In the 1990s and 2000s, Mohawk experienced several years of aggressive growth and has become the largest flooring company in the world.
