Beaulieu International Group chose Cartersville, Georgia, as the prime location for its new U.S. headquarters, according to a statement from Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal. The area is thrilled to welcome the Belgium-based company, which anticipates creating more than 350 jobs in the next five years.
Beaulieu International is constructing a campus of buildings on 120 acres of land previously owned by Anheuser-Busch. Initially, the operations will focus on designing and producing 47 million square yards of cushion vinyl for commercial and residential projects.
According to Beaulieu International's CEO, Geert Roelens, the company is experiencing a global demand for their finished floor coverings. The new location will allow the company to increase its production and better serve U.S. customers.
The company's move to Georgia was facilitated by the Bartow-Cartersville Joint Development Authority.
"Cartersville welcomes this respected company with a global presence, a long history of success and a vision for continued success in the years to come," said Cartersville Mayor Matt Santini. "The city of Cartersville looks forward to providing our quality services and a skilled workforce to Beaulieu International Group to make its vision a reality. I personally thank the company's leaders for their investment."
