Shaw breaks ground on Nantong carpet plant

27 June 2012
The US-headquartered Shaw Industries has started construction of a carpet tile plant in Nantong, Jiangsu province, which is set to open in one year.

The world’s largest carpet manufacturer expects to produce more than 1m sq metres of carpet tile in the first year of operating the new Nantong facility, which is designed to ultimately produce 5m sq metres annually. The plant will employ 75-100 workers in the first year and 200-250 at full capacity.

“In addition to Nantong’s transportation infrastructure, we were drawn to the city’s woven textile heritage, affording us a labour force that is familiar with the pedigree of product we manufacture,” said Jeff Galloway, Director of Global Operations. “
