Mohawk Industries, Inc., announced the appointment of W. Christopher Wellborn to President and COO of Mohawk. Mr. Wellborn has held the position of Chief Operating Officer since November 2005 and served on Mohawk's board of directors since 2002. Mr. Wellborn held the position of President of Dal-Tile, our ceramic and stone products business, from March 2002 to November 2005.

In commenting on the announcement, Jeffrey S. Lorberbaum, Chairman and CEO of Mohawk said, "Chris has been an excellent partner in his role as Chief Operating Officer as we transitioned from a carpet manufacturer to a total flooring business including carpet, rugs, ceramic, laminate, stone, wood and vinyl products. He has contributed to improving the company's strategic initiatives, organization structure, personnel development, and execution in this role."

"In his new role, Chris will continue in the development and execution of the company's strategy to deliver increased value to our customers, employees and shareholders. Chris will promote further innovation in our products, processes, marketing and brands in all of our operations across the enterprise. He will work with me and all our leadership teams to deliver on our commitments to quality, efficiency, service and sustainability."

As we emerge from this cyclical downturn, Mohawk continues to position the company to benefit with an improved organization and lower cost structure.

Mohawk is a leading supplier of flooring for both residential and commercial applications. Mohawk offers a complete selection of carpet, ceramic tile, laminate, wood, stone, vinyl, and rugs. These products are marketed under the premier brands in the industry, which include Mohawk, Karastan, Ralph Lauren, Lees, Bigelow, Dal-Tile, American Olean, Unilin and Quick Step. Mohawk's unique merchandising and marketing assist our customers in creating the consumers' dream. Mohawk provides a premium level of service with its own trucking fleet and over 250 local distribution locations.
