Mohawk Carpet Mills had its beginning in 1878 when four brothers from the Shuttleworth family brought 14 second hand looms from England to Amsterdam, NY. By 1908, the fledging firm introduced a new carpet, Karnak, and its success was instant and phenomenal. Flooded with orders, the Company's weavers worked four to five years without changing either the color or the pattern on their looms.
In 1956, Mohawk and Alexander Smith, Inc. merged to form Mohasco Industries, at that time the largest carpet manufacturer in the world.
In January 1989, a group of company executives returned Mohawk Carpet to its roots by negotiating a buyout of the carpet manufacturing component from Mohasco Corporation. The company would grow through several acquisitions into the leading carpet and floor maker it is today.
