Surry Hills, Australia, Oct. 31, 2012 -- Interface, Australia's largest carpet tile manufacturer, has formalized its commitment to rebuild its manufacturing facility in the Sydney area.
"This is wonderful news," said Clinton Squires, Interface Australia's managing director. "While of lot of companies are moving offshore we really want to be close to our customers."
The decision comes after a fire destroyed the company's Picton factory in July. Interface has been manufacturing carpet in Australia for over 40 years.
The company is considering an existing building located in southwest Sydney, but it remains subject to negotiation, a development application, and an internal due diligence process.
