Springs to Close Georgia Plant
December 20, 2004,
Due to waning product demand, Springs Industries will be shutting down its tabletop accent rug plant here where it produces Regal branded rugs, effective Feb. 1.
“(The shutting down of the Ellijay facility) allows for us to consolidate our rug production, lower our costs and operate more efficiently,” Matthews added.
Currently, the Calhoun plant mainly produces basic bath rugs and the Nashville site serves predominantly as a manufacturing and distribution center for other accent rug lines.
