Surya has announced plans to invest $33M to build a new corporate office and distribution facility in Cartersville, Ga.
Expected to add more than 200 new jobs in the north Georgia area, the expansion will allow the rug and home accessories manufacturer to consolidate shipping and distribution for its multi-category product offerings, creating a highly efficient logistics base and increased operational flexibility, according to the company.
“During the past several years, we have launched a number of new categories, resulting in significant revenue growth along with a corresponding increase in our employee base and warehouse capacity,” said Satya Tiwari, president, Surya. “At our core, we are focused on providing the best service possible to our designer and retailer customers, and this new facility will not only enable us to optimally serve our growing customer base, but will also offer an inspiring and creative workspace for our employees. The commute for employees residing in the Atlanta area will also be notably reduced, making Surya an even more attractive company for which to work.”
According to Tiwari, Surya has grown from $2.7M in sales in 2004 to $80M this year and has been recognized by Inc. Magazine as one of America’s fastest growing privately held companies in 2011, 2012 and 2013. The company has one of the fastest fulfillment rates in the industry, with 90 percent of running line products being shipped within 24 hours from order processing.
The new 1 million square-foot facility will include 50,000 square-feet of office space and serve as U.S. headquarters for the company’s executive administration, supply chain management, customer support, sales and creative development functions.
