Propex Expanding Georgia Backings Plant

Chattanooga, TN, June 3, 2013 -- Propex Operating Company said it will expand its carpet backings manufacturing facility in Hazlehurst, Georgia.

The expansion specifically involves investment of capital to increase capacity to produce Isis, a new platform of backings used in the manufacturing of commercial carpet tile.
Propex introduced Isis, the first recycled polyester woven backing for carpet tile, in 2011 after years of development.

The product was developed and is manufactured by Propex in its facility in Gronau, Germany.

Propex said the increasing global demand for Isis requires further investment in capacity to better serve customers.
