Stanton Carpet Corporation, supplier of decorative, self-branded carpet, area rugs and LVP, has acquired substantially all the assets of Cavan Carpets. Cavan serves the higher end residential market with a wool-based hand-loomed product line with a focus on unique textures. The announcement was made by Jonathan Cohen, CEO of Stanton Carpet.
Dan and Daniel McGovern, father & son founders of Cavan have joined Stanton as vice presidents of regional sales for Cavan with continued involvement in many aspects of this emerging brand. Cavan will continue to operate as a stand-alone brand within the Stanton portfolio through its agent-based sales team that will continue reporting directly to the McGovern’s. Stanton will assume all operational responsibilities and immediately begin re-locating Cavan’s inventory from Warminster, PA to Stanton’s 227,000 square foot distribution, customer service and fabrication facility in Calhoun, GA. Stanton expects to resume Cavan shipments beginning June 3rd or 4th.
According to Jonathan Cohen, CEO of Stanton, “Cavan has done a fantastic job since its inception in 2012. The Cavan product line complements Stanton’s existing hand-loomed products while offering an excellent platform for extended growth in the category. The McGovern’s are experts in this arena, and we look forward to partnering with them once again.”
Dan McGovern, co-founder of Cavan said, “Stanton has successfully grown market demand and further developed the vision for Antrim, a brand they acquired from us in 2007. This deal will enable Cavan to expedite its growth strategies and thrive within Stanton’s resources. We look forward to a great long-term future together.”
This acquisition builds on Stanton’s market position in the premium carpet niche, utilizing its account base, logistics, product development capabilities and outstanding customer service which have been the platform for growth at Stanton. Cavan will show separately but across from Stanton at Surfaces in February 2022.
