Mohawk Industries, Inc. has expanded its international presence through an investment of a minority interest in Sanfi Ceramics. Ceramic tile is estimated to make up 70% or more of all flooring sold in China and is 25 times larger in units than the U.S. ceramic tile market, with anticipated growth of 10% or more per year. The top 10 manufacturers in China currently comprise about 10% of the market, creating significant opportunity for expansion. This year, Sanfi has increased sales revenues about 50% from the prior year by continuing its focus on the local market.

”This new business venture clearly reinforces our continued commitment to being a global manufacturer in the flooring industry. We are excited to partner with a world-class company such as Sanfi,” said Jeffrey Lorberbaum, Mohawk Industries’ chairman and CEO. ”Our joining forces with Mohawk gives us access to the latest technology and a partner with a history of excellence in selling and distribution. We are eager to leverage our combined strength and expand our market presence,” said Chen Xiongzai, chairman and CEO of Sanfi.
