CALHOUN, Ga. (AP) -- A flooring manufacturer plans to add more than 200 jobs in northwest Georgia with a planned $42 million expansion.
Gov. Nathan Deal announced that Mannington Mills plans a second facility in Gordon County less than a mile from the plant where it currently employs 700 workers.
The company makes laminate, vinyl and hardwood flooring for commercial buildings and homes.
Mannington Mills' new 78-acre site will house workers in production, management, engineering and marketing. It will be located in Calhoun, about 65 miles north of Atlanta.
A news release says the company plans to have the new facility built and new workers in place by 2021.
