Shaw is a full-service flooring company that began in 1946 as the Star Dye Company. Initially, the company dyed tufted scatter rugs and expanded to carpet finishing in 1958 under the name Star Finishing Company. Following the acquisition of the Philadelphia Carpet Company, Shaw started manufacturing carpet in 1968, and eventually went public as Shaw Industries, Inc. in 1971.
Through the years, Shaw has added several new product lines and brand names. It was listed on the New York Stock Exchange under the SHX ticker symbol. In 2001, the company was sold to Berkshire Hathaway, Inc., the holding company of Warren E. Buffet. As a result, Shaw was no longer considered a public company. Approximately 25,000 people are employed by Shaw which brings in more than $4 billion in annual sales.
TrafficMaster does not have an official website that contains company, product, or contact information. The details for the company's flooring products can be found at Home Depot resources as well as TrafficMaster's modular tiles website. Although TrafficMaster has another website for the Dimensions line of engineered hardwood flooring, the Dimensions line is not offered through Home Depot.
