Milliken Acquires Constantine

Textile and chemical manufacturer Milliken & Company, Spartanburg, has purchased Constantine LLC, Calhoun, Ga., a designer and producer of broadloom carpet, modular carpet tiles, and hard surface and resilient flooring. The acquisition expands Milliken's floor covering offerings in commercial architectural and design (A&D) markets, and is the result of strategic organization and product alignment by Milliken in order to grow the companies' core technologies and capitalize on emerging markets.

"Given the world's continuing economic slump, it is encouraging for us to be on the growth side of the business alignment equation," said Richard Dillard, director of public affairs, Milliken & Company.

Some 300 employees from Constantine's four manufacturing locations and distribution center will become part of Milliken's Floor Covering Division.

"Constantine is a design leader in the premier commercial floor covering industry," said Joe Salley, president and CEO, Milliken. "This acquisition will immediately expand our market space while also building on Milliken's commitment to innovation, technology and sustainability. We are excited to have Constantine join the Milliken family."

"This transaction represents the strengthening of two organizations that together will offer unique and innovative solutions to the A&D industry," said Bob Weiner, founder and former chairman, Constantine.
