Mohawk Industries has opened a new distribution, sales and operations center in Flower Mound, Texas. The Flower Mound facility, which is about 30 miles northwest of Dallas, houses the South Central regional operations offices and regional sales offices.

Mohawk has had a distribution center presence in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex for many years, but said it needed a better designed facility to meet service commitments to customers across an expanding product line.

“Our Flower Mound facility will not only house all of these operations, but it will also include a new, state-of-the-art showroom, which will better serve our customers in the greater Dallas-Fort Worth area,” said John Ames, vp logistics for Mohawk. “This location is convenient for our growing customer base and will provide easy access to all parts of the metropolitan area.”

The new facility’s layout has been engineered for more efficient flow of product, which will help support Mohawk’s service for all customers in the facility’s seven-state service area. In addition to the process improvements, the Flower Mount facility will keep approximately 85 jobs in the area.

“Due to our continued success in this marketplace as well as the tremendous growth that we’ve experienced in the hard surface segment of our business, we are very pleased to be moving to our new Mohawk facility into the Flower Mound community,” noted Dan Butterfield, regional vp sales for Mohawk. “We would like to extend a special ‘thank you’ to Hillwood Development and the Town of Flower Mound for their strong support and partnership throughout this process.”
