Shaw Industries takes over Sanquhar Tile Services

Scotland-based carpet tile manufacturer Sanquhar Tile Services (STS) is now part of Shaw Industries, the largest carpet tile manufacturer in North America which supplies carpet, resilient, hardwood, tile, stone and laminate flooring products and synthetic turf to residential and commercial markets. STS’ acquisition expands Shaw’s carpet tile footprint.

The acquisition complements Shaw’s carpet tile manufacturing facilities in Cartersville and Adairsville, Georgia, USA, and in Nantong, China.

Scotland-based STS, a long-established and important carpet tile manufacturer in the UK, will continue to serve its customers as part of Shaw’s commercial flooring division. STS’ established and experienced leadership team and associates will continue to operate the business – with manufacturing capabilities from tufting through cutting – as part of Shaw.

Shaw, founded 50 years ago, and STS, which has been manufacturing carpet tile for 45 years, share cultures of innovation, service and long-tenured, experienced associates.

“This acquisition positions Shaw as a global carpet tile provider,” said Vance Bell, chairman and CEO of Shaw. “STS will be an important part of our commercial business, and we will make substantial capital investments to enhance and modernise their operations. We’re proud to count STS associates among the 22,000 individuals at Shaw who are working to create a better future for our customers, our communities, our company and each other.”

“Shaw’s continued investment in STS will ensure that we are poised to advance our position in the market and to provide our people with rewarding careers as we focus even more heavily on advanced manufacturing techniques that allow us to best meet current and future customer needs,” said Frank Williamson, managing director at STS.
