Shaw To Build Plant In Georgia, Add 500 Jobs

Shaw Industries Group Inc., Dalton, Ga., will invest $85 million to build a modular carpet tile manufacturing facility in Adairsville, Ga., and add 500 jobs.

Construction on the 600,000- to 700,000-square-foot facility is scheduled to begin in 2014. Shaw operates another carpet tile manufacturing facility in nearby Cartersville.

"We have expanded our existing Cartersville carpet tile facility to its maximum so the Adairsville plant will allow for continued long-term growth in this important product segment," said Vance Bell, Shaw Industries Group chairman and CEO. "We will also soon open a new carpet tile plant in China to service the Asia market."
