Mohawk Industries Inc., Calhoun, Ga., announced second-quarter (Q2) 2005 net earnings of $93,811,000 and diluted earnings per share of $1.39, representing an 8-percent increase over the same period in 2004. Q2 2005 net sales of $1,624,692,000 were 9-percent higher than Q2 2004 sales. Net sales for the Mohawk segment totaled $1,184,914,000, up 7 percent from year-earlier sales.

In other news, Mohawk reported its SmartStrand™ carpet made with DuPont™ Sorona® polymer has been well-received. The carpet is targeted to middle-to-high-end markets. The company plans to introduce new SmartStrand products by year-end.

Mohawk's SmartStrand™ carpet offers permanent, engineered-in stain protection.

In addition, the company won two Best of NeoCon® awards at the recent commercial interior products show in Chicago, and was named Carpet Manufacturer of the Year and Overall Floorcovering Manufacturer of the Year by FloorCovering News.

The company also announced it has agreed to acquire Unilin NV, a Belgium-based manufacturer and marketer of laminate flooring products.

"The acquisition of Unilin represents the second major step in diversifying into a total flooring company," said Jeffrey S. Lorberbaum, chairman and CEO, Mohawk. The company acquired tile manufacturer Dal-Tile in 2002.
