Georgia Names Stretch of Highway After Anderson

LaGrange, GA, July 23, 2014 -- The State of Georgia is dedicating 16 miles of Interstate 85 in Troup County to Interface founder Ray C. Anderson.

The company's flagship manufacturing operation is based at either end of the corridor, in West Point and LaGrange.

The bill designates the stretch of Interstate 85 in Troup County as the Ray C. Anderson Memorial Highway.

The legislation was sponsored by State Representative Randy Nix (R-LaGrange) and will be signed by Governor Nathan Deal on July 30.

“Ray Anderson was truly a visionary,” said Nix.

“Not only did he revolutionize the carpet industry, but his commitment to manufacturing sustainability has proven that good environmental stewardship is good business.”
