Dalton—Engineered Floors’ Whitfield County carpet plant, SAM, is in its fifth phase of a major expansion, FCNews has learned. After the addition is complete the SAM facility will measure about 2 million square feet, making it one of the largest buildings in Georgia.
According to James Lesslie, assistant to the chairman, the expansion will increase the company’s productivity and further support Engineered Floors’ residential and commercial endeavors. “This expansion will allow us to accommodate some additional tufting and yarn capacity,” he said, adding that work on the facility is steadily moving with steel up in 30 to 45 days.
Since the inception of its first plant in 2009, Engineered Floors now operates four different facilities. SAM is on track to become the company’s largest carpet mill.
