Dalton, Ga. - Shaw Industries Group Inc. will build a new facility in Adairsville, located in Gerogia's Bartow County, where the company will produce modular carpet tiles.
The company will make an $85 million investment on the facility and expects to create 500 new jobs.

Shaw will also soon open a new carpet tile plant in China to service the Asian market, he added.
In Adairsville, the plan calls for building and equipping 600,000 to 700,000 square feet of manufacturing and warehouse space. The plant will be constructed on 117.6 acres located near the intersection of Highway 140 and Hall Station Road.
Construction will begin in 2014.
As Bartow County's largest employer, Shaw currently operates six facilities in the county, including another carpet tile manufacturing facility located in Cartersville.
