Paul De Cock (Unilin), President of the European Producers of Laminate Flooring (EPLF) since last May and member of its executive board since 2014, has resigned from his office with immediate effect.

Paul has been promoted within Mohawk Industries Inc to become President of the company’s Flooring North America segment. Regarded as one of the largest manufacturers of flooring in the world, Mohawk Industries’ products cover all common floorcovering materials, ranging from ceramics and hard flooring to resilient flooring and carpets.

Paul knows the business in North America quite well, as he successfully managed Mohawk’s North American hard surface business as President from 2005 to 2009, and contributed to the American holding’s global expansion after he returned to Europe.

Recently, he supervised the acquisition of Godfrey Hirst, the largest carpet manufacturer in Australia and New Zealand, and the subsequent consolidation with the Mohawk-owned distributors in those markets.

EPLF-Vice-President Max von Tippelskirch (Swiss Krono Group) said: “This is a fascinating challenge for Paul De Cock. There are only very few comparable key positions in the global flooring industry. We are thankful for his co-operation and are wishing him the best of luck.”
