Shaw Industries announced plans to expand its operations in Aiken County, South Carolina. The approximately $400 million investment will create more than 300 new jobs at the manufacturing facility, which creates fiber used to manufacture residential carpet.

Shaw’s expansion will increase the company’s manufacturing capacity and support future growth for new products. This location currently employs more than 600 associates. The expansion is expected to be completed by the end of 2024.

“Our expansion in Aiken represents a significant, long-term investment in our people and processes that will allow us to meet current and future projected market demand for high-quality carpet products," said Shaw Executive Vice President of Operations David Morgan. "This investment positions Shaw well for the future and represents tremendous career opportunities for current and future associates."

The Coordinating Council for Economic Development has approved job development credits related to this project. Aiken County was also awarded two Set-Aside grants, totaling $1,750,000, to assist with costs related to this project.
