Orian Rugs invests $10 mn for its new plant
Jul '10
Orian Rugs, a textile manufacturer, over the next one-and-a-half year period, plans to spend around $10 million towards development of its Anderson plant. This move well echo's the increasing market share of the company as also its expansion in to Canada and Mexico.

Groundwork for the plant site is planned to commence on August 1. The yarn plant to be spread on 60,000-square-foot will also have space for a weaving room. As per the company reports, this expansion will generate employment opportunities for a dozen of persons in Anderson this year, which is expected to rise to 50 over the next three years.

Wim De Pape, Company's Chief Operating Officer remarked that, they are lucky enough, as in spite of the global economic crisis they still have a sturdy niche market for their woven-rugs business. He further added that, any of these things couldn't have turned out if they didn't have a committed bunch of industrious employees.

The plant originally founded on S.C. 81 North in Anderson in 1979 is a source of livelihood for around 400 persons. Also, the rugs manufactured at this Anderson plant are vended at a number of big-box stores.

Early this week, the company had hosted a ceremony to commemorate the launch of its expansion project. It is believed that, prior to the commencement of the actual construction; it would take few weeks time for preparation of the site. However, the official stated that, they expect the building to get ready by the coming spring.
