  • 05-11-2014 - Lano Carpets to acquire Bajong Carpets

    Dear customer, dear partner,


    We are proud to announce that we have reached an agreement in principle with McThree nv to take over its subsidiary Bajong Carpets – its team, products, inventory and brand – with immediate effect.  Lano’s and McThree’s works councils have been informed of the transaction and the consultation process is currently ongoing.
    For some time, McThree had the firm intention to put all its efforts and resources into its key activity of woven area rugs.  Lano, on the other hand, is a well-established brand that manufactures innovative broadloom carpet and turf flooring, for residential, hospitality, landscaping and sports applications.  The Bajong Carpets brand will be a good addition to Lano’s residential tufted carpet segment.

    For you as a customer, nothing will change for the time being.  You can count on a continued high level of service, while we move all production equipment and staff to the Lano plant in the next few months.  We will also keep you regularly informed about the stock levels, production dates and the status of the ranges.

    We sincerely thank you for your continued trust in us. Our teams are available to answer any questions you may have.
    Best regards,

    Joseph Lano      Philippe Van Hecke                   Rik De Smet                              Stefaan Duchi
    CEO Lano          Commercial Director Lano           General Manager Bajong             CEO McThree

    About Lano
    Headquartered in Belgium, Lano will achieve about 85 million euros of net sales in 2014 and employs approximately 400 people.

  • 17-04-2013 - Distribution agreement Mohawk and Lano

    Dear Valued Customer,


    Lano Carpets is pleased to announce exciting changes that will provide better service to our customers and strengthen Lano Carpets’ position in the market.  Mohawk International and Lano NV have signed a distribution agreement for the Western European residential broadloom market.  Lano Carpets will now distribute Mohawk’s residential broadloom next to its own carpet collection.

    This strategic move will play on the strengths of both organizations.  Lano Carpets is well-respected throughout Europe for its high quality carpet and service and Mohawk is known for its cutting-edge innovation and style.  The combined sales team will offer Lano qualities while also delivering Mohawk products such as SmartStrand® and EverStrand®.
    This combination will provide our customers with the convenience of the best Mohawk and Lano products from a single sales source, improving our service and saving you time.


    This improved distribution model will cause no immediate changes for our customers.  As we integrate the Mohawk Europe and the Lano operations in the coming weeks, we will communicate clearly to ensure a seamless and swift transition.  We appreciate your business and look forward to continuing our established working relationship.

  • 25-02-2013 - Lano Flooring Solutions decks out the Empress cruise ship


    With a reputation for delivering high quality IMO certified carpets, it is no wonder that Lano Flooring Solutions has partnered with Pullmantur, the largest Spain-based cruise line company in the world, and supplied over 135,000 m² of woven axminster carpets for its fleet over the past six years.

    One of the most recent collaborations with Pullmantur has resulted in 15,000 m² of striking bespoke carpets gracing the floors of the Empress ship. Covering areas including the main atrium, alleyways, restaurants, casino, children’s area, spa, gym and staterooms, the carpets showcase the best of Lano Flooring Solution’s design ability and offer superior levels of durability and underfoot comfort with a wool-rich blend.

    As Ronnie Wilkie, design executive for Lano Flooring Solutions explains, “Pullmantur approached our experienced design team, asking for custom-made carpets that would create a stylish and eye-catching look for passengers on the Empress. A particular highlight of this project is the carpet in the Schooner Piano Bar; designed with a nautical appeal, its swirling pattern in rich gold and midnight blue also has a musical theme that reflects the area’s use for evening entertainment.”
    Lano Flooring Solutions also provided the artificial grass on the outer decks of the Empress Ship, and recently worked closely with Pullmantur’s marine operations director, Benjamin de Haas, to create 12,500 m² of carpet designs for its sister ship the Sovereign.

    One of the first ever carpet manufacturers to invest in the latest high-tech Van de Wiele axminster looms, Lano Flooring Solutions has forged a long and successful track record of supplying high-performance IMO certified carpet to the growing cruise market.
