Here are some ads for some brands that are sold internationally. I just thought it was interesting to see who was advertising and what the brands that were being developed around the world. There were lots more ads, but I just selected a few that caught my attention.
I saw several very nice carpet tile manufacturers. I think they could be competitive in the future for the dominat US carpet industry. There are underlying differences between the products currently, but the differences continue to diminish. (Many US companies like Interface and Shaw have focused on cradle to cradle usages which may be a long term strategic advantage.)
Quickstep flooring, owned by Mohawk Industries had a nice booth here in China. There are are the HIGH end of the domestic Chinese market.
This is some great marketing information. I have no idea what it means, but I believe it or not it was at a flooring booth. Classic marketing.
From the same collection as the prior photo, more touching marketing stories about Grandpa & grandma. I also enjoy the “Dirty” feature of this flooring and the fact that they highlight that Grandpa is now gone, but the flooring is still there. Yikes!
Daheng Timber had some very nice flooring looks which I will show some photos online tomorrow. They had a nice brochure.
Shanghai Yunsheng bamboo had aot of the prior innovations that I showed in those bamboo pictures from Yesterday.
