Shaw comes to Beijing

Shaw Contract Group continues to expand its presence within China by opening a showroom in Beijing. Sales personnel serving the Beijing market will be based in the new showroom. Once Shaw Contract Group opens its new carpet tile manufacturing facility in 2013, Shaw showrooms and offices throughout Asia will become an even greater resource for customers to survey the brands entire product line of recyclable EcoWorx tile products.

“As we expand into the growing Beijing market, Shaw Contract Group is increasing its presence, giving new and existing customers greater access to high performance Cradle to Cradle certified EcoWorx carpet tile,” says John Stephens, vice president of marketing for Shaw Contract Group. “Shaw sales team members are seasoned professionals, intimately familiar with the Beijing commercial market and Shaw’s entire catalog of flooring solutions. They are invaluable resources to the Chinese architectural and interior design community, as well as Red Chip companies and multinationals with a presence in China.”

Shaw Contract Group – the leading commercial brand of Shaw Industries Group, Inc. – will build on its long-term commitment to China and the entire Asia Pacific market when it breaks ground in June on a carpet tile manufacturing facility in Nantong. Located in Jiangsu Province, 100 km northwest of Shanghai, the facility will produce carpet tile specifically for Asia – ensuring customers have access to the widest possible range of products.

EcoWorx is Shaw Contract Group’s award-winning, PVC-free carpet tile. To date, more than one billion square feet of EcoWorx tile have been installed in 80 countries around the world. EcoWorx is designed to be recycled into more EcoWorx; Shaw’s environmental guarantee reclamation program helps facilitate recycling from international ports – anywhere in the world – at no cost to its customers.
