"This latest expansion by Mohawk is strong evidence that the economy, especially the housing market, continues to improve,” said Greater Dalton Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Brian Anderson. “It also illustrates the strong commitment of Mohawk Industries to Dalton and all of northwest Georgia. We are fortunate to have the floorcovering industry and Mohawk Industries based in northwest Georgia."
"The technically skilled workforce found in Rome and Floyd County has proven to benefit the existing industries in our community and surrounding areas,” said Greater Rome Chamber of Commerce Chairman James N. “Doc” Kibler. “The business climate here is helpful to manufacturers and certainly helps our small business.”
Georgia Department of Economic Development Project Manager Carl Campbell, who partnered with the Georgia Department of Community Affairs, also assisted the company on behalf of the state.
“Mohawk Industries has a longstanding history of investment in our state and has created numerous high-quality jobs for the community,” said Chris Carr, commissioner of the Georgia Department of Economic Development. “The Mohawk expansion shows not only Georgia’s ability to attract investment from Fortune 500 companies, but it also shows how our resources and skilled workforce help booming businesses keep up with changes in the industry.”
