You will see in the following pages that Lexmark Carpet has the most comprehensive running line product offered in the hospitality industry. In addition to our running line products Lexmark also has the ability to help develop and design custom patterns or colorations. We have launched a new interactive feature on our web page called the Design Portfolio. This new tool allows for browsing our custom pattern collection and choosing the color placement online. Please visit www.lxdesigns.com to review the patterns and capabilities.

We are very proud of our new manufacturing facility that has put corporate headquarters, tufting, extrusion, and heat setting under one roof. The new larger facility has allowed us to continue to add manufacturing equipment. The new equipment additions are 2 new extrusion lines, new heat setting equipment, and a new 1/12 gauge 4 E loop scroll. The new equipment will allow us to offer better service and unique styling.

The partnership between Lexmark and Stacy Garcia continues to be successful and we are developing more exciting additions to the line.

Vertical Integration

Lexmark’s integrated extrusion capabilities generate competitive advantages through significant cost savings, enhanced customization, and industry-leading delivery speed. Lexmark’s ability to produce its own yarn supply reduces the need to maintain large amounts of inventory and enables Lexmark to react quickly to produce yarns in custom and standard running line colors. In house yarn extrusion, yarn processing, and tufting has lead to substantial cost saving which has been passed on to our customers through lower prices. The combination of service, styling, quality, and pricing has led to Lexmark becoming a market leader in the hospitality carpet market.
