FLOORING company Shaw Industries Group has acquired Scotland-based carpet tile manufacturer Sanquhar Tile Services (STS).

Shaw is the largest carpet tile manufacturer in North America and this acquisition meets the needs of its global customers.

Shaw already has tile manufacturing facilities in Cartersville and Adairsville in Georgia in the US and in Nantong, China.

STS’ leadership team and associates will continue to operate the business as part of Shaw.

“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 modernize 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.”
