Kennesaw, Ga.-based Lees Carpets, a subsidiary of Calhoun, Ga.-based Mohawk Industries Inc., has
announced that its Glasgow, Va., manufacturing facility has earned ISO 14001:2004 certification for
its environmental management system. The facility previously earned ISO 9001:2000 certification
related to the quality of its products. “It is one of only a few carpet manufacturers that have met
the requirements of both certifications,” according to Diann Barbacci, vice president of
sustainable design. “This will expand new business opportunities from companies that insist on
partnering with manufacturers committed to environmentally sound practices,” Barbacci said.
