On May 16, Fortune magazine released its 65th annual list of America's 500 largest companies, and for the 20th consecutive year Mohawk has earned a position on the prestigious list. Mohawk placed 315 in the 2019 rankings, retaining its same spot from the previous year.
The company’s milestone 20th year in the Fortune 500 reflects Mohawk’s continued commitment to innovation, fashion, quality, value, and a superior customer experience.
Fortune’s eagerly anticipated annual list ranks businesses based on revenues from their previous fiscal year. The magazine's print and online editions also provide financial highlights for each of the 500 companies on the list.
Fortune’s iconic rankings first appeared in 1955, and the initial list was topped by General Motors. Flooring was represented on that first list of elite businesses: Mohasco Corporation, the company from which Mohawk Industries was spun off in 1988, placed 445 and appeared on the list for 35 consecutive years until 1989.
Mohawk’s unique flooring collections, expansion into new markets and entry into new product categories have sustained the company’s growth since its initial public offering in 1992. Today, exceptional contributions from more than 42,000 men and women in 42 countries around the world accelerate the business' progress by making, selling and delivering products that set the industry standard for design and performance.
Thanks to everyone for the great work that drives the company’s performance and extends Mohawk’s leading position as the industry’s preferred provider.
