Nourison to Expand Georgia Warehouse
Nourison's Calhoun facility
SADDLE BROOK, N.J.-Nourison plans to expand its Calhoun, Ga., distribution facility by about 30 percent, adding 132,000 square feet to the existing 305,000 square feet. Construction is currently under way and is expected to be completed in early spring. The expansion will include state-of-the-art machinery, advanced logistics and office space, as well as expanded shipping and receiving capabilities.
The facility currently stores, processes and ships out a bulk of the company's extensive line of area rugs, accent rugs, home accents and broadloom. It also houses the company's hospitality division, including executives, designers and sales staff.
"The City of Calhoun and Gordon County have been instrumental partners in our expansion. We are thrilled to be part of this vibrant area of Georgia," said Andrew Peykar, Nourison's vice president. "With this addition, we will further our ability to service our customers the way they have been accustomed to from Nourison. This state-of-the-art facility and systems we have put in place allows us to turn orders around very quickly, sometimes minutes after the order is taken. We are poised now to turn that sometimes to always. We will also be adding 40 to 50 new employees as well as new equipment, such as high-speed picking machines to this location."
The company's corporate headquarters in Saddle Brook, N.J., also includes a warehouse and shipping facility.
