Saddle Brook, NJ, Jan. 8, 2014 -- Nourison has begun a 132,000 square foot expansion of its distribution center in Calhoun, Georgia.
The expansion of the 305,000 square foot facility is expected to be completed in early spring and will include machinery, logistics and office space, as well as expanded shipping and receiving capabilities.
The new facility will allow Nourison to provide improved, more consistent customer service, according to Andrew Peykar, vice president of Nourison.
“This state-of-the-art facility and systems we have put in place allow us to turn orders around very quickly, sometimes minutes after the order is taken. We are now poised to turn that sometimes to always. We will also be adding 40 to 50 new employees as well as new equipment, such as high-speed picking machines to this location," he said.
Nourison’s warehouse in Calhoun currently stores, processes and ships out a bulk of the company’s area rugs, accent rugs, home accents and broadloom. In addition, the complex houses the company’s hospitality division.
