Shaw Industries Group will build a new facility in Bartow County to manufacture modular carpet tiles. The company expects to make an $85 million investment and create 500 new jobs.
Shaw plans to build and equip 600,000 to 700,000 square feet of manufacturing and warehouse space. The plant will be built on 117.6 acres located near the intersection of Highway 140 and Hall Station Road. Construction will begin in 2014. Shaw currently operates six facilities in Bartow county, including another carpet tile manufacturing facility located in Cartersville.
"We have a long history in Bartow County," said Shaw Director of Corporate Assets Chuck Dobbins. "The close collaboration with state and local government and economic development officials, the availability of suitable land, the readiness of a diverse talent pool and easy access to transportation hubs were instrumental in our site selection process."
