Saddle Brook, N.J.—Nourison will be expanding its 305,000-square-foot distribution center in Calhoun, Ga.

The company said the 132,000-square-foot expansion is expected to come online in early spring and will include state-of-the-art machinery, advanced logistics, office space and expanded shipping and receiving capabilities.

“The city of Calhoun and Gordon County have been instrumental partners in our expansion,” said Andrew Peykar, Nourison’s vice president. “With this addition, we will further our ability to service our customers the way they have been accustomed to.”

Peykar noted that the facility and systems will allow Nourison to turn orders around quickly, sometimes minutes after they are taken. “We are poised now to turn that ‘sometimes’ to ‘always,’” he said. “We will also be adding 40 to 50 new employees as well as new equipment, such as high-speed picking machines.”

Nourison’s warehouse in Calhoun currently stores, processes and ships a bulk of the company’s extensive line of area rugs, accent rugs, home accents and broadloom. In addition, the complex houses the company’s hospitality division, including executives, designers and sales staff.

The company’s corporate headquarters in Saddle Brook, N.J., also includes a modern warehouse and shipping facility.
“We will continue to ship from this location as well,” Peykar said.
