Shaw Marine Carpet to be Featured on "Ship Shape" TV



Dalton, GA - July 7, 2014 - Shaw Marine carpet will be featured on an upcoming episode of "Ship Shape TV," a popular boat improvement show that caters to the approximately 36 million boat owners in the country. Hosted by John Greviskis and now in its 19th season, Ship Shape TV shows viewers how to accessorize their boats and make improvements and repairs. The program airs on regional networks, including Sun Sports in Florida, Fox SportsNet Florida, Fox SportsNet South, Comcast SportsNet Chicago, Comcast SportsNet Houston, Comcast SportsNet New England and Mid Atlantic Sports Network.

In some episodes, Ship Shape TV features tours of selected manufacturers' facilities, and viewers learn how many boat-related products are made and marketed. The episode highlighting Shaw and its products features three plants in and around Calhoun, Georgia demonstrating tufting, application of Shaw's patented R2X® stain and soil resistance treatment and coating. The episode also includes an interview with Tracy Daves, Shaw's builder design center manager for the East Coast at the Shaw Design Center.

"John (Greviskis) had seen our new "Keys Collection" of marine carpet treated with R2X at the 2013 IBEX boat show and was interested in featuring it on one of his programs," says Fred Thomas, marketing manager for Shaw Specialty Products. "The collection was an innovation Award entry, and John particularly liked the liquid repellency feature of the products."

Theepisode is scheduled to air on July 12. Another episode featuring Shaw is planned for the fall.
