CAP Carpet – owner of Aircraft Interior Products (AIP) and White Oak Custom Carpet – has acquired Mountain Rug Mills and Spinning Wheel Rugs.
CAP Carpet is based in Wichita, Kansas, USA, with additional manufacturing facilities in Spindale, North Carolina, USA. Mountain Rug Mills and Spinning Wheel Rugs are both based in Hendersonville, North Carolina.
“We are very excited to have the opportunity to acquire such a reputable specialty carpet manufacturer, so close to our existing White Oak plant in Spindale,” said Aaron Pirner, owner of CAP Carpet.
“Mountain Rug Mills represents a long history of in-house custom dyeing, hand-tufting, machine-woven and pass machine capabilities, not to mention the amazing team of talented artisans with many years of experience in hand-tufting beautiful and fashionable carpets.
“This acquisition will permit us to provide a new level of unique unbeatable styling as well as improve our speed and quality of color match on yarn. No other supplier to the aviation industry will be able to offer as many carpet styling options as AIP, and the real benefit to the customer is faster service since everything, including hand-tufted carpets, will be made right here in the USA.”
Mountain Rug Mills has been manufacturing in the Blue Ridge Mountains of western North Carolina since the 1940s, and makes carpets and rugs for the residential, commercial, aviation and yacht industries. One of its most notable projects involved designing and making carpets installed in The White House.
