Orian Rugs Enlarges Yarn Plant
Orian Rugs Inc., Anderson, S.C., a manufacturer of woven area rugs and scatter rugs, is investing
$10 million to construct a 60,000-square-foot facility to expand its yarn plant, adding 12
employees in 2010 and creating up to 50 more jobs over the next three years. The company reports it
has experienced increased market share and growth in North America.
Established in 1979, Orian Rugs currently operates a 550,000-square-foot vertically integrated yarn and rug manufacturing facility, and sends zero waste to landfill. The company's 400-plus sales, design, marketing and customer service personnel also are located at the facility, as is the Orian Rugs® outlet store.
The company expects to complete construction in the summer of 2011.
