Shaw To Expand Thomson Nylon Extrusion Facility

Shaw Industries Inc., Dalton, Ga., is to invest $27 million in its Thomson, Ga., facility in order to expand its nylon extrusion capacity for carpet manufacturing. The expansion is a response to increased demand for the companys products and will add 70 jobs to the local economy.

Richard Stuckey, director of extrusion for Shaws Thomson and Aiken, S.C., plants, said the expansion will increase capacity at the Thomson plant by 65 to 70 percent.

"We are also refurbishing our Superba heat-set units and replacing twisters with new models, and will upgrade the entire manufacturing process," he said.

Shaw expects to complete the expansion in early 2006.
