That alone would have made us one of the top five flooring companies in the world. We’ve become a global business, which means we can leverage innovation from the around the world and bring them to you with better products and superior value. Since 2013, Mohawk has invested more than $500 million in new products, expanded capacity and in increased efficiencies. Next year we will invest another $750 million in those same facilities without any acquisitions of which we hope to find a few.”
