Mohawk makes Forbes' Platinum 400, again

Sugar Valley, GA — Forbes has announced that for the third consecutive year Mohawk Industries made its Platinum 400 List of the country's "best big companies."

Of the 16 companies in the "household products" category that made this list, Mohawk Industries was named the "Best of Breed," showing a 181 percent five-year stock price increase.

Mohawk Industries is the only home textiles company to make the list, for which the main criterion is revenue of more than $1 billion, as well as the best aggregate scores for both long- and short-term financial returns, plus other performance and valuation measures. Other household products companies on the list included Ralph Lauren Home, Clorox, Nike and Timberland.

I'm Tom Russell and have worked at Furniture/Today since August 2003. Since then, I have covered the international side of the business from a logistics and sourcing standpoint. Since then, I also have visited several furniture trade shows and manufacturing plants in Asia, which has helped me gain perspective about the industry in that part of the world. As I continue covering the import side of the business, I look forward to building on that knowledge base through conversations with industry officials and future overseas plant tours. From time to time, I will file news and other industry perspectives online and, as always, welcome your response to these Web postings.
