Forner Carpet Company produced high-grade carpeting materials for use in automobiles and recreational vans. Forner’s products were sold to finishers, who cut and bound the material so that it would fit perfectly in the passenger compartment or cargo area (e.g. automobile trunk) of a specific model vehicle. These finishers also made carpet floor mats. Some of these finishers were captive operations of major automobile assembly divisions, particularly those that assembled the “top of the line” cars that included high-grade carpeting; other finishers concentrated on the replacement and van customizing markets.
