Unlike some other flooring manufacturers, Shaw enjoys the benefit of being vertically integrated. By controlling nylon polymerization, fiber extrusion, production and reclamation of our products, we can manage cost and ensure the quality of the entire product.
Providing professional services to the corporate customer, Shaw Integrated Solutions (SIS) is a valuable benefit to our customers due to our size and the resources available to Shaw. SIS provides flooring consultation, standards programs, forecasting, management reports, quantity estimates and installation services, to name a few. SIS leverages a nationwide network of flooring contractors to provide customers with the best price without having to bid out every project. SIS will take care of these details so customers can focus on other aspects of their projects.

Shaw has 30 regional distribution and redistribution hubs in the United States. In addition, Shaw owns the largest trucking fleet in the carpet industry, consisting of 866 tractors and 3,472 trailers. These trucks make 2 million deliveries each year and travel over 80 million miles. Shaw maintains a domestic and an international freight department. As the largest carpet distributor in the world, Shaw offers the most competitive rates available. Shaw's redistribution transportation network can track shipments at any point between departure and arrival to the customer.
Shaw testing on various cleaning procedures, machines, and chemicals is compiled in our Maintenance Booklet, which is provided with each product to ensure that the customer's staff is properly informed. Shaw also has a professional training staff to conduct on-site training. The fundamentals will be presented in a one and a half hour training session where questions are welcome. A presentation, "Maximizing Your Carpet Investment," will include all facets of carpet care. Trainers will also work with maintenance crews to devise appropriate maintenance schedules for your facility.
