Shaw Industries has acquired Calhoun, Ga.-based Georgia Tufters Inc. from majority owners Jeff and Fredrick Brown.

"Georgia Tufters has been a well-managed operation, with product lines highly complementary to our current offerings of custom tufted, fabricated, printed, and machine-woven rugs," said Jeff Meadows, head of Shaw's rug division.

Georgia Tufters, whose primary product lines include tufted bathroom and scatter rugs, will become part of Shaw's Rug Division and will maintain operations at the Calhoun manufacturing site.
