News from the carpet industry

David Kolb is retiring and has notified the company he will not serve another term on Mohawk Carpet's board of directors. Mr. Kolb did us the honor of stopping at our booth at Surfaces in 1996. I'll never forget it and how we talked for more than an hour. He was president at the time and later became board chairman before retiring in 2004. All of us throughout the Bane-Clene system extend our best wishes for a happy retirement to this friend and fine gentleman.

In 1983, J&J Industries became the first carpet mill to endorse the Bane-Clene system. J&J has just named Bill Crosley as corporate vice president of sales. His responsibilities will include selling efforts and the oversight of the commercial carpet brand, J+J Invision. Congratulations to Mr. Crosley who has been with J&J for more than 35 years.
