Founded in 1978, Beaulieu of America began in Dalton, Georgia, as the first producer of polypropylene oriental rugs.
As sales grew the company invested in yarn extrusion in 1981 becoming the first manufacturer in the carpet and rug industry to produce their own yarn. Sparked by continued growth, they diversified into tufting carpet in 1984, establishing a factory known today as Beaulieu Commercial in Chatsworth, Georgia.
With incredible growth in the carpet and rug manufacturing, expansion in yarn extrusion and polymer became necessary. From the first carpet manufactured in 1984 to the acquisition of Conquest Carpet Mills, Interloom, Coronet Industries, Grass More and D&W Carpets, through the establishment of Murray Fabrics, Beaulieu of America has rapidly grown into the world's third largest carpet producer. With the additions of Marglen Industries, Columbus Carpet Mills, and Peerless Carpet Corporation, Beaulieu of America has further strengthened its position as the #3 soft floor covering producer in the world.
Beaulieu Carpets Takes On The World....
In 1980, Beaulieu Canada was founded for the manufacturing of woven rugs. The 1990 purchase of Coronet yielded Coronet Canada, the second largest carpet manufacturer in Canada. Expansion continued and in 1998, Beaulieu acquired Peerless Carpet Corporation.
Beaulieu Carpets of Canada is Canada's largest carpet manufacturer of more than 200 styles and 4,000 colors of wall-to-wall carpet in the market today and with over $300M in sales is part of the Beaulieu of America Corporation. "The unique and innovative patterns, textures, and colors that are available today, resulting from the latest fibre and manufacturing technologies, offer endless home styling options and are taking the spotlight at every floor show", says Leslie Beaumont, from Beaulieu Carpets.
Overseas production was expanded in 1995 when Beaulieu acquired an Australian Manufacturer, Sterling Carpet Mills, creating Beaulieu Australia. Beaulieu Australia features state-of-the-art extrusion for the production of BCF polypropylene and nylon fibers following the vertical integration philosophy of its parent, Beaulieu of America.

The product range includes level loops, scroll loops, Berbers, sisals, Saxony and textured cut piles, precision cut/un-cut, over-prints, super velvet weaves, multi-tufts and others.
