Tandus Issues Clarification of Its Ownership of Collins and Aikman Floorcoverings



    DALTON, GA., November 28 /CNW/ - Tandus Group, Inc. ("Tandus") reported
today that its wholly owned subsidiary Collins and Aikman Floorcoverings, Inc.
is not affiliated with the Collins & Aikman Corporation which has been
identified in recent news articles.

    Collins & Aikman Floorcoverings, Inc. was an operating unit of Collins &
Aikman Corporation until 1997 when it was then split off in a sale transaction
led by its executive management team and a private equity sponsor. Since that
time there have been no legal association or business relationship between the
companies and they have operated independently.

    Collins & Aikman Floorcoverings, Inc. markets commercial carpets under
the "C&A Floorcoverings" and "C&A" brand names.

    "The confusion caused by such similar company names and some common
history is understandable; however, we want assure the marketplace that C&A
Floorcoverings is healthy and stronger than ever," said Len Ferro, Chief
Financial Officer of Tandus. "With the synergies realized by being part of the
Tandus Group, C&A is poised for even greater growth."

    This announcement was made solely by Tandus Group, Inc. and was not
sanctioned by anyone associated with Collins & Aikman Corporation.
