Dalton, Ga. -- Shaw Living, the rug division of parent Shaw Industries, is underway with the second phase of its rug consolidation plans.
Last year, the company completed the first phase of this effort, consolidating rug distribution at its Ringgold, Ga. Facility, and now all manufacturing equipment from Shaw Living's other sites are set to be moved over the next few months to the newly state-of-the-art Ringgold plant.
"This move will be a significant benefit to our customers, as it will improve our time to market and customer service," explained Herb Upton, Shaw Living director of operations. "All of our Shaw Living assets, including R&D, design, manufacturing, sales, and distribution, will now be centrally located. This undertaking demonstrates our continued commitment to improving our position as a world-class supplier of machine-made woven and tufted rugs."
