Shaw expands warehouse capacity, Berber inventory
To better accommodate demand for it’s 15-foot carpet products, Shaw Industries is expanding its Ringgold North distribution facility in Ringgold, Ga., by 156,000 square feet. The expansion project, which should allow Shaw to maintain the highest inventory of 15-foot Berbers and other broadloom styles in its history, is scheduled for completion in January.
The enhanced facility will have capacity for 2.2 million square yards of carpet. Also, the warehouse will employ a rack system that’s three shelves higher than those used in Shaw’s other North Georgia distribution centers, and make use of a new conveyor system to expedite the flow of inventory within the facility.
