The India-based textile company, Surya, recently invested $30 million in to a new facility in Cartersville, GA, creating 200 jobs.
Governor Deal said, “Surya’s decision to expand in Georgia is an indicator of the strength of our competitive business climate. With a highly effective logistics infrastructure that includes the busiest passenger airport in the world, the fourth-busiest container port in the nation and an interconnected highway and railway system, it is clear that Surya made the right choice.”
Hiring has already begun for this state-of-the-art 1,000,000-square-foot facility that will handle supply chain management, sales, web and creative development services. This project will retain 250 jobs and create 200 new jobs.
President of Surya, Satya Tiwari stated, “During the past several years, Surya has invested in a number of home accessories categories, resulting in significant year-over-year growth and steady expansion of our employee base and warehouse capacity. Our new facility will enable us to consolidate our product offerings under one roof, providing a highly efficient logistics base and the operational flexibility needed to optimally serve our designer and retailer customers. The addition of 53,000 square feet of inviting office space, designed with Surya’s energetic and collaborative culture in mind, will provide a great working environment for both existing employees and new talent as we continue to execute on our strategy to become a $1 billion company.”
