The History of Mohawk

Frank D. Pabis started Mohawk Finishing Products with an initial investment of $5,000 in 1948. In 1973, Pabis merged his firm with RPM, a company based in Ohio. By 1980, Mohawk Finishing had 200 employees, 140 of them in Amsterdam. Pabis died in 1981. Twenty years later, in 2001, RPM closed the Amsterdam plant and moved Mohawk Finishing Products to Hudson, North Carolina.
