Mohawk, Unilin Raising Wood Flooring Prices

Dallas, TX, June 5, 2013 – Both Mohawk Industries and its Unilin division said they will raise prices up to 7% solid and engineered hardwood flooring, effective Aug. 5.

The increases affect the Mohawk, Columbia and Century brands.

“Unfortunately, sustained raw material cost increases in hardwood continue to outpace our productivity initiatives,” said Shane Calloway, vice president of North American independent distribution sales for Unilin.

Jamie Byrne, Mohawk's senior vice president of hard surfaces, issued a similar statement.
