Bartow’s Largest Employer to Build New Plant, Add 500 Jobs


Shaw Industries, the world’s largest carpet and floor covering manufacturer, is planning a new facility in Bartow County. Shaw is already Bartow’s largest employer, employing more than 15,000 Georgians, and has six national plants, including one in Cartersville. Shaw Industries will dedicate the new plant to manufacturing modular carpet tiles and has decided it will need about 500 people to keep the new plant running. The company plans to invest $85 million into about 650,000 SF of manufacturing and warehouse space. The facility will sit on 117.6 acres near the intersection of Highway 140 and Hall Station Road in Adairsville. Construction is set to begin in 2014.

    Remember making a will and planning to assess your holdings minimizes the tax liabilities, court costs
    and unnecessary legal fees over your estate and maximizes its value.
    Despite this, we often ignore the importance of will and probate law and hardly do anything to protect our assets and wealth.
