Shaw Industries invests and expands in north GA

Posted: Updated:
DALTON, GA (WRCB) -

Shaw Industries is investing $100 million to both streamline its distribution network and expand its fiber extrusion facility in Northwest Georgia.

This expansion will add approximately 175 jobs to the company.

Earlier this year, Shaw announced plans build a carpet tile manufacturing plant in Adairsville, GA. That investment of $85 million will employee 500 workers.

"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.
 
Distribution Network
The distribution network upgrades will include constructing an additional 535,000 square feet of warehouse space in Dalton. It will also consolidate shipping for both carpet and hard surface flooring in other distribution centers in Northwest Georgia.
 
Extrusion Capacity
Shaw's extrusion facility (Plant WM) in Dalton is expanding capacity within its existing facility and purchasing an adjoining piece of land for future expansion. The state-of-the-art high-speed extrusion equipment will increase the plant's output by over 30 percent and will be able to run all resin types currently used in the industry.
