Calhoun, Ga.—Creative Flooring Solutions (CFL), a manufacturer of laminate, wood and luxury vinyl tile, said it will invest more than $70 million in a new manufacturing facility here.

“This marks a next step in our plan to become a global company, producing closer to where our goods are being sold,” said Thomas Baert, owner and president of CFL. “We are looking forward to contributing to the economic well-being of the community in Calhoun, Gordon County and Georgia.”

Founded in Shanghai in 2004, CFL employs 3,500 at three factories, multiple offices and distribution centers around the world. It will locate to a newly constructed 252,000-square-foot facility in Calhoun with plans to build another 250,000 square feet in the near future. The plant will create 300 jobs that will include positions in management; professional, skilled craftsmen; operators; and laborers. Additional information regarding job inquiries can be directed to jobsUSA@cflflooring.com.

“The CFL factory and showrooms in Calhoun will drastically increase convenience of working with our partners and distributors,” said Tom Van Poyer, CFL owner and CEO. “Being able to supply products produced in the United States will allow us not only to sustain our leadership position in product design and product innovation but also create a platform allowing second-to-none service through reduced delivery times.”

Georgia Governor Brian Kemp added, “We are thrilled that CFL has chosen Gordon County to expand their business operations to more effectively reach their customer base. The impact of this announcement will be felt across the region as the company seeks to employ 300 hardworking Georgians.”
