Dalton—As the popularity of LVT continues to grow, Engineered Floors has made the decision to initiate domestic LVT production in the Seretean facility, located here, utilizing the latest and most innovative manufacturing equipment available, the company said.
A complete revitalization of the 1.2 million-square-foot facility will not only drastically reduce lead times, the company said, but also allow for the necessary flexibility to expand in the future. “Our carpet manufacturing model is to have a large operation that allows for efficient product flow and minimize work in process inventory in the facility,” said Robert E. Shaw, chairman & CEO. “The Seretean facility will certainly permit that model to be executed with our LVT production.”
The domestic production of LVT in north Georgia will provide unique opportunities for research and development, design and quality assurance bringing a new level of excellence to the hard surface arena, the company said. With this investment in American-made LVT, Engineered Floors said it continues to broaden its product assortment in order to meet the needs of its valued customers.
