Home News Mohawk to expand LVT capacity with $200 million investment

Calhoun, Ga.—Mohawk Flooring will invest about $200 million in two new state-of-the-art LVT facilities during 2016 and 2017, doubling Mohawk’s worldwide LVT production capacity, adding new product capabilities and reinforcing the company’s leadership position in this key product category.

These new facilities will include unique capabilities to manufacture both flexible LVT and rigid LVT (WPC) products for residential and commercial applications, with production anticipated to begin during the second half of 2017.

“We are quickly becoming the world’s leader in the fastest growing flooring category,” said Brian Carson, president of Mohawk’s Flooring North America segment. “We are building upon the advantages we obtained with last year’s IVC acquisition, and during the next two years we will significantly invest to expand our capacity to meet the increased demand for our industry-leading LVT products.”
