Mannington Mills recently held a ribbon cutting celebration at its new luxury vinyl tile (LVT) finishing plant in Madison, Ga.
The facility, which has been in operation for two months, is the third major LVT investment in Madison since Mannington bought Amtico in 2012.
This event coincided with Mannington’s board meeting and annual shareholders meeting. As part of the ceremony, Mannington’s chairman, Keith Campbell, surrounded by family members who are also shareholders, cut the ceremonious ribbon.
The finishing facility is adjacent to the LVT manufacturing facility, which was built by Amtico in 1998 but has been expanded twice by Mannington in the last two years. LVT slabs are converted at the facility into either running line products or custom orders depending on the need. This operation also adds the click profile for those products that are sold to be installed as a floating floor.
Mannington now employs over 400 manufacturing workers in Madison.
In a gesture to further accentuate its commitment to the region, Campbell donated a $75,000 check to a new zoo and safari park that is in the early stages of construction and a $50,000 check to the county hospital to go toward a new emergency room.
