Wellmade Flooring Expands Cartersville, Georgia, Manufacturing Plant

Wellmade Flooring, a company specializing in the design, production, and distribution of hard surface flooring collections, will invest more than $35 million in expanding its manufacturing facilities to Bartow County, Georgia. The project is expected to create 240 jobs in the area.

Headquartered in Portland, Oregon, Wellmade serves several Atlanta-based companies including The Home Depot and Floor & Décor. The brand-new energy-saving 328,000 square-foot facility will be located at Busch Drive in Cartersville.

“It’s a pleasure to welcome this family-owned business to Georgia,” said Governor Brian P. Kemp. “Georgia is home to a robust flooring industry and business market thanks to our workforce and infrastructure, and I’m confident this move will benefit Wellmade greatly. I look forward to seeing the opportunities this new facility creates for hardworking Georgians in Bartow County.”

“With its deep roots in the flooring industry, Georgia provides an excellent pro-business environment for Wellmade’s expansion to the East Coast,” said Richard Quinlan, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Wellmade. “We look forward to providing a superior customer experience, while decreasing lead times and ensuring on-time delivery to our growing customer base.”

“Bartow County is pleased to welcome Wellmade Flooring," said Bartow County Sole Commissioner Steve Taylor. “Northwest Georgia remains one of the strongest regions of the world for the floor covering industry. We believe that the great business environment in Bartow County and in the region will be advantageous for the company, just as the job opportunities and economic investment created by the company are votes of confidence in the community.”

“I would like to thank all our business development partners for their support in winning this project for Georgia,” said GDEcD Commissioner Pat Wilson. “Wellmade Flooring’s investment shows once again how the floor covering industry continues to grow in Northwest Georgia. We are proud of our unmatched workforce training programs, unparalleled logistics network, and pro-business environment which have proven key in attracting numerous companies to every corner of the state.”
