Mohawk Industries Expands Manufacturing in Carroll County, Virginia
“We are excited to expand production in Hillsville and appreciate the opportunity to continue providing great jobs in the Commonwealth,” Plant Manager Ed Spivey said. “Operating a growing business means creating continued opportunities for the people in this community. We appreciate our team’s diligence and dedication that supports the demand for Mohawk’s award-winning residential carpet.”
The Virginia Economic Development Partnership worked with Carroll County and Virginia’s Industrial Advancement Alliance to secure the project for Virginia. The Virginia Tobacco Region Revitalization Commission approved $95,000 in Tobacco Region Opportunity Funds. Funding and services to support the company’s employee training activities will be provided through the Virginia Jobs Investment Program.
“Mohawk Industries is an important corporate steward of Carroll County and the Commonwealth, and we are pleased the company has decided to reinvest in Virginia, securing its future longevity in the region,” said Governor Ralph Northam. “This win can be attributed to the region’s strong workforce, infrastructure, and competitive business climate. We are proud to boast this industry leader on our roster and look forward to continuing our long-term partnership with Mohawk.”
“Keeping Mohawk in the Commonwealth was a priority and the result of teamwork by the County, Virginia’s Industrial Advancement Alliance, and the Virginia Economic Development Partnership,” said Secretary of Commerce and Trade Esther Lee. “The advanced manufacturing industry continues its growth in Virginia, which is home to more than 6,000 manufacturers employing over 242,000 workers. We applaud Mohawk’s growth and investment in Carroll County and look forward to its continued success.”
“Carroll County could not be more gratified to begin a new chapter of its long-standing relationship with Mohawk Industries,” said Steve Truitt, Carroll County Administrator. “Mohawk remains one of our largest employers, a leader in our community and a linchpin in our plans for future economic development and growth. In turn, Carroll County is committed to continue working closely with Mohawk leadership to ensure its continued success in Carroll County and the Commonwealth.”
