Shaw Investing $400M to Expand South Carolina Residential Fiber Plant
Columbia, SC, November 1, 2021-Shaw Industries will expand its operations in Aiken County, South Carolina with an investment of approximately $400 million to its production facility that creates fiber used to manufacture residential carpet.
Located at 136 East Frontage Road in Aiken, Shaw’s expansion will increase the company’s manufacturing capacity and support future growth for new products.
Up until now, the plant has produced nylon 6 exclusively, but the equipment can run either nylon or polyester.
The expansion is expected to be completed by the end of 2024 and will create more than 300 new jobs.
The plant was construction by Beaulieu in 1994 and sold to Shaw in 2002.
