Mattex To Establish Operations In Eton, Ga., Add 200 Jobs

Mattex, Dubai — a producer of carpet backings, artificial grass backings and geotextiles — will invest $60 million to establish a U.S. headquarters and manufacturing operation in Eton, Ga., and create 200 jobs.

Mattex will build a 275,000- to 375,000-square-foot plant equipped with tape extrusion, beaming and weaving equipment to produce primary and secondary polyolefin-based carpet backings. The plant is expected to open in 2014.

The company has production plants in Saudi Arabia and Dubai; and warehouse/distribution offices in Belgium, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, China and Calhoun, Ga.

"Our mission to be the 'preferred global partner of choice' led us to build a state-of-the-art carpet-backing facility in North Georgia as the next logical step for better servicing our current customer base," said Luc Blommaert, CEO, Mattex Group.
