Chinese flooring firm CFL to invest over $70 million in Georgia
United States governor Brian Kemp has announced that Creative Flooring Solutions (CFL), a Chinese manufacturer of laminate, wood, and luxury vinyl flooring, will invest more than $70 million in a new manufacturing facility in Calhoun, Georgia. This move will create 300 jobs for Georgians.
CFL will locate to a newly constructed 252,000-square-foot facility at 3576 US Highway 41 in Calhoun, and plans to build another 250,000 square feet in the near future.
“We are excited to welcome CFL to Calhoun and grateful to become a part of the company’s global success story,” said Georgia Department of Economic Development Commissioner Pat Wilson. “Thanks to our logistics network and workforce, Georgia’s manufacturing sector is thriving as we continue to attract leaders in the flooring industry to the state.”
Founded in Shanghai in 2004, CFL employs 3,500 at three factories, multiple offices and distribution centers around the world.
