[Dalton, Ga.] IVC US announced that plans are underway to build a brand new luxury vinyl plank and tile (LVT) manufacturing facility in the United States. The $80 million project is anticipated to be completed and fully operational first quarter 2015.
“Following the success of our LVT investment in Belgium, the decision to move forward with another major LVT investment for North America underscores IVC Group’s position in leading this category from both sides of the Atlantic. It also underscores our confidence in the North American market,” said Jan Vergote, CEO of IVC Group. The company has not disclosed the location of the new plant.
The 300,000 square foot LVT manufacturing facility is projected to create in excess of 200 jobs. In addition, building the new plant in the United States will also mean that 100 percent of IVC US LVT will be American made, according to the company.
