MOHAWK INDUSTRIES REPORTS EFFECT OF SNOW STORM ON OPERATIONS

 ATLANTA, March 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Mohawk Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ-NMS: MOHK) announced today that the snow storm that hit north Georgia and the rest of the East Coast this past weekend should have only a slight effect on shipments and service to customers.
 Although some property damage to buildings and equipment occurred at its Calhoun, Ga., facilities, no other company locations were impacted. All distribution centers and data processing centers are fully operational and sustained no damage.
 During the period of repair to its facilities, the company has arranged to shift any interrupted production to other Mohawk facilities or to supplement internal production with outside sources. The company noted that it is adequately insured against losses due to property damage of business interruption. The company anticipates any adverse impact on earnings would be minimal and temporary.
 Mohawk Industries, Inc., is a leading producer of both woven and tufted broadloom carpet for residential and commercial applications. Following its acquisition of Horizon Industries, Inc. in October 1992, Mohawk became the third-largest carpet manufacturer in the world. The company's production facilities are fully integrated from yarn preparation through finished goods. The company markets a wide variety of styles, primarily in the medium to high price points under its brand names Mohawk, Alexander Smith, Horizon, Harbinger and Helios.
