ABSTRACT
The article reports on the business comeback of Brumlow Home in marketing tufted rugs. It notes that the company left the tufting business on 2003 after it sold this division to Mohawk Home in Sugar Valley, Georgia. It states that Brumlow Home invested $5 million for new machines and equipment to make new tufted rugs with stylistic designs. These, in addition to the ColorTech machine, keep costs down and allow greater efficiency in incorporating colors.
