The Savannah Economic Development Authority has welcomed Shaw Industries to Savannah.

Shaw has relocated its Southeast distribution center to Savannah from Columbia, South Carolina, and has already doubled its original 156,000 square foot facility to more than 300,000 square feet, reported Savannahnow.com.

“Savannah is a really good fit for us. Right now, we’re bringing in 130 containers a week, and it’s not our peak season,” said Randy Smith, director of regional distribution.

The manager of Shaw's Savannah operation has been pleased by the caliber of employees the company has found in Savannah, further reports Savannahnow.com.

“The teammates we’ve been able to hire here have been amazing,” Gary Robertson said. “You have some good, hardworking folks in this region.”
