Shaw Industries Group, Inc. (Shaw), the world's largest carpet manufacturer and a leading floorcovering provider, is investing $100 million to streamline its distribution network and expand its fiber extrusion facility in Northwest Georgia. These investments will expand capacity for projected growth, add approximately 175 jobs and improve service to its customers. This follows Shaw's recent announcement of plans to invest $85 million to build a carpet tile manufacturing plant in Adairsville, Ga. that will employee 500 associates, and the company's opening of a carpet tile facility in Nantong, China, to serve Asia.
"As our end-use markets recover, we are accelerating our investments in our business. This will benefit not only our customers, but our associates and the communities where we operate," said Shaw Chairman and CEO Vance Bell.
"Shaw Industries has been a pillar of our community for many years, and we are pleased to assist them with their latest expansion," says Brian Anderson, President and CEO of the Greater Dalton Chamber of Commerce. "This expansion will continue to strengthen our local economy and provide quality jobs desired by our community."
