Shaw dedicates staff to bath and scatter rugs
July 15, 2004,
DALTON, Ga. — Shaw Living is in the process of creating a permanent staff of sales representatives to service its bath and scatter rugs and top-of-bed categories — all businesses the company picked up through its 2003 acquisition of Georgia Tufters, said Jeff Meadows, division vice president.
“We’re moving away from independent agents,” he said. “We feel that like this, we’ll have better controls.”
The company is also planning to create a new vice president of sales post for its area rug business, he said. The person holding that position will report to Meadows.
