Mohawk Industries creates 420 jobs in Dalton, Rome
ATLANTA - Gov. Nathan Deal announced Wednesday that Mohawk Industries will convert two manufacturing facilities in Dalton and Rome, creating 420 new jobs and investing about $85 million in the projects over the next two years.
The facilities will be converted from yarn spinning plants to bulk continuous filament (BCF) twisting and heat setting plants, enabling both to keep up with growing demands, as well as create an additional 420 jobs at the Mohawk facility in Dalton and preserve 230 jobs at the Rome plant.
“As the U.S. economic recovery gains traction, Mohawk is increasing manufacturing capacity to meet rising demand for the company's premium soft carpets,” said Joe Yarbrough, Mohawk’s senior vice president of advanced manufacturing engineering. “These major investments in Dalton and Rome – in addition to the company’s previously announced Summerville project – will create or retain more than 1,000 excellent jobs across the region."
