Atlanta, Ga.—Huali Floors, a China-based manufacturer of resilient flooring, will establish its first U.S. headquarters and manufacturing facility in Murray County, according to Georgia Governor Brian Kemp.
“Our USA headquarters and manufacturing facility will further support our commitment in bringing world-class service and quality to our customers,” said Philip Yuan, president of Huali Group. “The strong flooring community that the Northwest Georgia area embodies was a determining factor in our commitment, and we want to be part of that spirit. We, Huali Floors, are very excited and proud to be able to call Murray County our USA home and become an active member, as we saw and felt the strength of the community through the project process. We look forward to growing here in Northwest Georgia and are committed to investing and supporting our new community.”
Established in 2002, Huali Floors manufactures a variety of high-quality floor covering products, including luxury vinyl tiles, stone plastic composite and wood plastic composite flooring. It employs more than 2,000 full-time associates with revenues in excess of $360 million. The new headquarters is set to create at least 315 new jobs—including administration, manufacturing and research and development positions—and the company will invest more than $27 million in an existing facility.
“We are excited to welcome Huali Floors to Murray County,” said Governor Kemp. “It’s a testament to Georgia’s logistics network and readily available workforce when an innovative company like Huali Floors chooses Georgia to establish their first U.S. manufacturing operation. I congratulate the hardworking Georgians in Murray County on this exciting news, and I am confident Huali will find success in the Peach State.”
