Beaulieu International Group plans to invest $200 million to build a campus-style manufacturing facility in Cartersville, Ga., according to the company.
The company said it will establish its U.S. headquarters there on 120 acres and create 350 jobs in the next five years. It's expected to be operational by the end of next year.
Initially Beaulieu will manufacture one product, a 16-foot cushioned vinyl flooring, in one building on the campus. That product is now produced in Belgium and shipped to the U.S. It could eventually produce a variety of products at the site, but not carpet.
Beaulieu International Group is composed of three business units. Flooring Solutions is a European leader in wall-to-wall floor coverings (carpet, needle felt, cushion vinyl, LVT and wood). A second business unit, Granules, produces polypropylene granules for numerous applications. The third business unit, Engineered Products, houses the activities Fibres, Yarns, Technical Textiles and Technical Sheets.
Currently, the company has 3,500 employees in 26 plants and nine sales offices spread across 13 countries. In 2013, the company reported sales of $1.5 billion.
