Construction is under way for the expansion to Nourison's 305,000 square foot distribution center in Calhoun.
The 132,000 square foot expansion is expected to come online in early spring and will include state-of-the-art machinery, advanced logistics, office space as well as expanded shipping and receiving capabilities.
"The City of Calhoun and Gordon County have been instrumental partners in our expansion. We are thrilled to be part of this vibrant area of Georgia", said Nourison's Vice President, Andrew Peykar. "With this addition, we will further our ability to service our customers the way they have been accustomed to from Nourison. This state of the art facility and systems we have put in place allows us to turn orders around very quickly, sometimes minutes after the order is taken. We are poised now to turn that sometimes to always. We will also be adding 40-50 new employees as well as new equipment, such as high-speed picking machines to this location."
Nourison’s warehouse in Calhoun currently stores, processes and ships out a bulk of the company’s extensive line of area rugs, accent rugs, home accents and broadloom. In addition, the complex houses the company’s hospitality division, including executives, designers and sales staff.
Nourison’s corporate headquarters in Saddle Brook, N.J. also includes a modern warehouse and shipping facility. “We will continue to ship from this location as well,” said Peykar.
