Manufacturer plans $184M expansion project in Alabama

Shaw Industries Group is investing $184 million in its carpet fiber factory in Andalusia. The move includes demolishing and expanding existing buildings, as well as new construction. The company is also installing new manufacturing equipment.

“These investments will ensure the long-term viability of this critical operation within Shaw’s portfolio of manufacturing facilities,” said Shaw Industries Chairman and CEO Vance Bell. “They are designed to improve the plant’s ability to compete successfully in the marketplace for the short and long-term.”

The investment will improve efficiency and production at the plant, as well as ergonomics and safety for more than 1,000 associates. Improvements will be made to the factory's chillers and new equipment will be added to improve energy efficiency.

“This facility upgrade will utilize state-of-the-art technology and innovative processes that will be industry-leading in cost and quality,” Bell said.
