Mohawk Industries to add 200 jobs in million dollar expansion

Posted: Updated:

Mohawk Industries announced on Thursday that they will be adding at least 200 jobs as the company undergoes a $100 million expansion.

The company, which is headquartered in Calhoun, Ga., will be expanding its vinyl floor operations at the tile manufacturing facility in Dalton, Ga.

Officials say the plant expansion will increase luxury vinyl flooring production during a time when hard surface sales tend to outpace carpet sales.

The flooring products will be made for both commercial customers, as well as residential customers.

Mohawk Industries, the world's largest floor covering manufacturer, currently employs more than 34,000 people worldwide, and about 10,000 of those people work in Georgia.
