Thomas Lester -- Furniture Today, January 7, 2014
Nourison is adding 132,000 square feet to its 305,000-square-foot distribution center in Calhoun, Ga.
SADDLE BROOK, N.J. — Rug and home décor manufacturer Nourison is expanding its 305,000-square-foot distribution center in Calhoun, Ga.
The 132,000-square-foot expansion is expected to come online in early spring and will include new machinery, advanced logistics, office space and expanded shipping and receiving capabilities.
"With this addition, we will further our ability to service our customers the way they have been accustomed to from Nourison," said Andrew Peykar, Nourison vice president. "This state-of-the-art facility and systems we have put in place allows us to turn orders around very quickly, sometimes minutes after the order is taken. We are poised now to turn that sometimes to always. We will also be adding 40-50 new employees as well as new equipment, such as high-speed picking machines, to this location."
Nourison's warehouse in Calhoun currently stores, processes and ships out a bulk of the company's extensive line of area rugs, accent rugs, home accents and broadloom. In addition, the complex houses the company's hospitality division, including executives, designers and sales staff.
Peykar added that the city of Calhoun and Gordon County, Ga., "have been instrumental partners in our expansion."
Nourison's corporate headquarters in Saddle Brook, N.J., also includes a modern warehouse and shipping facility. "We will continue to ship from this location as well," said Peykar.
