A Short History of CORT

CORT could trace its lineage to a carpet mill established by William Shuttleworth and sons in the Hudson Valley in 1875. The company incorporated as Shuttleworth Brothers Company in 1902. It changed its name to Mohawk Carpet Mills in 1920 after a merger with McCleary, Wallin and Crouse. It changed its name to Mohasco Corporation after a merger with Alexander Smith, Inc. in 1956.

In the 1960s, Mohasco decided to enter the furniture business and began acquiring furniture stores including: Barcolo Manufacturing, Stratford Corporation, Chromcraft and Peters-Revington.
