A China-based flooring manufacturer will be investing $26 million and establishing its first U.S.-based manufacturing facility in Adairsville, Gov. Brian Kemp announced Wednesday.
The move by GreenView Floors International Inc. — described in the Wednesday press release as a leading manufacturer of vinyl and laminate flooring — will create 238 jobs.
“Adairsville is glad that GreenView Floors has decided to invest in our community,” Adairsville Mayor Kenneth Carson stated in the release. “GreenView, a part of the global company MGM out of China, will renovate a vacant building on Princeton Boulevard and revitalize the property. We are proud to welcome GreenView Floors to Adairsville.”
Kemp called the announcement “a testament to Georgia’s ability to attract investment from leading international manufacturers. ... GreenView’s new manufacturing facility will create fantastic opportunities for hardworking Georgians and their families, and we are thankful that they chose to invest in Adairsville-Bartow County.”
Headquartered in Nanjing, China, the company is under the umbrella of Nanjing MGM New Material Co., Ltd., a privately-owned Chinese enterprise that specializes in manufacturing vinyl and laminate flooring.
The company’s clients include Mannington USA, Hagebau German, COSTCO, and Walmart.
“We have been welcomed to Adairsville-Bartow County with tremendous hospitality,” said Jason Liu, chairman of NJ MGM, in the release. “We were guided by professionals throughout this process and received essential support from local government. With a company mission of being “Dedicated to A Greener Environment” and values persistent in business integrity, continuous improvement, and customer satisfaction, we are eager to hire a world-class team in Adairsville. We are committed to long-term growth and hope to give back to both the community and the state of Georgia.”
Georgia Department of Economic Development Project Manager Sandra Yang represented the Global Commerce Division in partnership with the Cartersville-Bartow County Department of Economic Development.
“This is an exciting project for our economic development partners in Bartow County,” said GDEcD Commissioner Pat Wilson. “With access to a skilled workforce and an interconnected logistics network, I am confident that GreenView Floors International, Inc. will find success in Georgia as they grow to meet the needs of their customers.”
