Shaw Industries Group, Inc. is investing $100 million to streamline its distribution network and expand its fiber extrusion facility in Northwest Georgia. These investments will expand capacity for projected growth, add approximately 175 jobs and improve service to its customers. This follows Shaw's recent announcement of plans to invest $85 million to build a carpet tile manufacturing plant in Adairsville, Ga. that will employee 500 associates, and the company's opening of a carpet tile facility in Nantong, China, to serve Asia. The distribution network upgrades will include constructing an additional 535,000 square feet of warehouse space in Dalton as well as consolidating shipping points for both carpet and hard surface flooring in other distribution centers in Northwest Georgia. When completed, hard surface distribution will be consolidated into one central location with an additional 70% capacity. Construction at Shaw Plant 34 in Whitfield County will begin this fall, and the planned changes in efficiency and capacity for both hard surface and carpet distribution will be complete by the end of 2015. During the consolidation phase, some associates will shift to new roles and new locations. Over the next five years, Shaw expects to add 110 associates in these facilities. The new jobs created in this expansion will be filled on a rolling basis as equipment comes online beginning in October 2013.
