Governor Nathan Deal announced today Belgium-based Beaulieu International Group (B.I.G.) will establish its U.S. headquarters and create 350 jobs in Cartersville over the next five years. The campus will be constructed on 120 acres directly across from the Highland 75 industrial park on land previously owned by Anheuser-Busch InBev. In the first phase, B.I.G. will design and produce 47 million square yards of cushion vinyl for commercial and residential application.
Georgia Department of Economic Development Commissioner Chris Carr said, “More than 72 percent of the nation’s carpet and rug mill manufacturing jobs are located in Georgia.” He continued saying, “When high-caliber companies such as B.I.G. choose Georgia to call home, they not only enhance our portfolio of quality companies, but they also highlight the strength of our solid labor pool.”
