Wichita’s CAP Carpet has acquired Mountain Rug Mills and Spinning Wheel Rugs in Hendersonville, N.C.
Financial terms of the acquisition were not disclosed in a news release Thursday.
CAP Carpet, a longtime business based in Wichita, owns Aircraft Interior Products and White Oak Custom Carpet.
The acquisition is expected to bolster AIP and White Oak’s capabilities in the manufacture of luxury carpet for the general aviation industry, a CAP official said.
“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 (N.C.),” Aaron Pirner, CAP Carpet owner, said in the release. “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.”
Mountain Rug Mills has been operating since the 1940s. It makes carpets and rugs for residential, commercial and aviation uses.
AIP established its roots in the private aviation business, supplying specialty wool carpets for major corporate aircraft clients. AIP’s parent company, CAP Carpet, purchased White Oak in 2009.
