Shaw Industries Group Expands Ringgold, Georgia, Manufacturing Plant

Shaw Industries Group, Inc., one of the world's largest carpet manufacturers, will invest $20 million to expand its resilient manufacturing capabilities in Ringgold, Georgia.

The company also plans to expand its SPC (stone plastic composite) manufacturing plant in the first quarter of next year, as part of a phased expansion expected to create approximately 55 new jobs at the facility that correctly has 240 workers.

“Our latest investments address the growing demand for SPC within the resilient category while illustrating our commitment to U.S. manufacturing,” said David Morgan, executive vice president of operations. “We’ll continue to invest in manufacturing capabilities, strong sourcing partnerships, robust distribution networks and innovation to continue to be the leader in this category.”

“In the past few years, Shaw has invested significantly in people, products, processes and plants to ensure we meet customer expectations for high-quality products and superior service,” Vance Bell, Shaw Chairman and CEO said at that time.

“Fueled by the acquisition of USFloors and the opening of Plant RP, Shaw is expanding rapidly in the high-growth resilient and composite core category,” said Bell. “The expansion of our manufacturing capabilities at this facility positions us for continued success.”

“The diversity of products manufactured at this location will continue to expand including the addition of the composite core production line,” he added.
