Mohawk Home puts Record in charge of global sourcing, welcomes back Douglass tohead bath

Sugar Valley, Ga. - Looking to strengthen its importing initiatives with additional resources, Mohawk Home has promoted David Record to director of global sourcing.

Record, who has been with the company almost 10 years, was formerly product manager for Mohawk Home's bath rugs division. He is being replaced by Patrick Douglass, who is returning to Mohawk after being away several years -- first at Oriental Weavers/Sphinx as vp of product development, and most recently at Surya Inc., where he served as vp of printed rugs.

Record said Mohawk Home's new global sourcing strategy is aimed at "ramping up our collections. We do what we do domestically, and the things that we don't do here, we will look to do elsewhere."

He added that the company will continue to build on its core business - domestically produced area, accent and bath rugs and doormats -- while explore new opportunities overseas where it isn't already doing business with partners to create products that will round out Mohawk Home's soft floor covering line.
