We appreciate the confidence these people have placed in us over the years.”

Jerry Bryson, owner of ACWG, is a veteran of the flooring industry with over 35 years of product and consumer sales experience and his general manager, Ken Smith formerly with Owens Carpet which was a successful flooring wholesaler for many years. “Ken has brought much to the table with his product knowledge and supplier relationships. I am pleased that he is part of the ACWG Team,” said Bryson.Flooring industry executives at the event included members of Shaw Living Carpets and Rugs , Mohawk Carpet and Rugs, Armstrong Flooring, Congoleum Flooring, Earthwerks Flooring, Karndean Floors, Milliken Rugs, Mannington Floors, Beaulieu Carpets, and Quikstep Floors to name just a few.
The ACWG showroom is important to these companies because it not just sells their products it displays and uses their products. “Every step you take in the ACWG showroom is taking a step on a product we believe in and want you to experience first hand” says Ken Smith, general manager of ACWG. Further adding, “The person that is looking for flooring should have the opportunity to actually stand on the product and see what it feels like underfoot, not just in a box or on a sample board, we provide that and encourage everyone to come by here to experience that before buying.”ACWG does operate an online retail store as well at www.americancarpet.net and all of the products and brands are available there as well.
