Carpet firm Beaulieu of America to close Model plant

In October, Beaulieu of America announced closure of its Riverbend facility in Dalton, Georgia. Now, Beaulieu of America officials announced the reduction of operations at its Dalton Model Plant, effective January 2, 2012.

The plant has been in operation since 1989. “We make each of these decisions very carefully,” commented Ralph Boe, president and CEO of the third largest carpet producer. “That's why we wanted to re-evaluate this action before we announced.” Approximately 150 Beaulieu associates could be affected.

The tufting and dying operations at the Model Plant will be phased-out over the next two months, with production absorbed by other Beaulieu facilities. Beaulieu will make every effort to offer Model Plant associates other opportunities within the company, according to Boe.

“This is regrettable but necessary in the face of a continued sluggish economy and reduced carpet demand. These two closures (Riverbend and Model) will allow our remaining tufting mills to operate on a more efficient basis.”

Beaulieu of America is the world's largest carpet-only manufacturer focused exclusively on making carpet for residential, commercial, and specialty markets. It is headquartered in Dalton, Georgia with $1.0 billion in sales and over 5,000 of the industry's best and most dedicated employees.

It designs, manufactures and markets BLISS carpet for residential replacement, BOLYU carpet for specified commercial, AQUA carpet for the hospitality industry and Armstrong FASHIONSMART carpet for new home construction.
