Propex Consolidates Nashville, Hazlehurst Production

Propex Operating Co. LLC, Chattanooga, Tenn., will shutter its Nashville, Ga., plant, citing a surplus of North American capacity, and will consolidate most of the woven geotextiles production at Nashville to its carpet backing plant in Hazlehurst, Ga.

Propex also will expand capacity at Hazlehurst to begin producing Isis® recycled polyester woven backing for commercial carpet tile. The backing is currently produced only in Germany.

"Our decision to manufacture Isis in Georgia shows our commitment to provide innovative products to support the continued growth of the U.S. carpet industry," said Dave Gartshore, vice president, Propex Furnishings Solutions and Curv® Composites Divisions.

Propex expects the expansion will be complete in summer 2014 and will create a significant number of jobs.
