Surya to hire 200 in Cartersville

[Cartersville, Ga.] An India-based company plans to open a million-square-foot facility in Cartersville and hire about 200 people, according to an announcement by Gov. Nathan Deal.

Surya will invest $30 million in what the governor’s office described as a corporate office and distribution center that will handle “supply chain management, sales and web and creative development services for the company.”

The project involves retaining 250 jobs that already exist as well as the additional hiring – which has begun, according to the governor.

The area around Cartersville has long been one of the world’s largest centers for production of flooring.

Surya also makes rugs and other soft goods for the home furnishings market, although the company’s goods sold in the United States are manufactured overseas. Surya markets its products to the retailer, interior designer and hospitality markets globally from its current location.

The project developer is C2 Partners LLC together with the Cartersville-Bartow Development Authority and the Georgia Department of Economic Development.
