New flooring maker brings 300 jobs to NW Georgia

Creative Flooring Solutions, which manufactures laminate, wood and luxury vinyl tile, will create 300 jobs and invest more than $70 million in a new manufacturing facility in Georgia’s flooring and carpet corridor along I-75 north of Atlanta.

The company, founded in China by European owners, employs 3,500 at three factories and in locations around the world. It says it is the largest exporter of flooring in Asia.

“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. 

The company will locate in a newly constructed 252,000-square-foot facility at 3576 US Highway 41 in Calhoun, with plans to build another 250,000 square feet in the near future.

“The impact of this announcement will be felt across the region as the company seeks to employ 300 hardworking Georgians,” Gov. Brian Kemp said.

New jobs will include positions in management; professional, skilled craftsmen; operators; and laborers. Additional information regarding job inquiries can be directed to jobsUSA@cflflooring.com.
