While Mohawk is a global flooring leader, our roots are firmly planted in American soil. To honor our employees and celebrate our heritage, Mohawk hosted a special American flag raising ceremony just in time for Independence Day last year.
To show our appreciation for these employees, Mohawk raised a 45 foot by 75 foot American flag — the largest in the history of the state of Georgia — on the grounds of our Union Grove campus near I-75, one of America’s most heavily trafficked highways.
