Dalton — Ground has been broken and construction preparations are underway for IVC US’s brand new luxury vinyl tile and plank (LVT) manufacturing facility in Dalton—a projected $100 million investment into the local community, code named Project Stella 2. “We are very excited to partner with a local general contractor, Fox & Brindle Construction Co, and to have the support of the local community,” said Xavier Steyaert, Co-CEO, IVC US. “This new LVT plant is an ambitious venture, and one that will add 200 Georgia jobs and continue to strengthen our region.”
Dalton — IVC U.S. said it would expand its production of fiberglass sheet vinyl to a 24-hour operation, seven days a week, at the company’s Dalton plant, starting March 1.
“The fact that we are able to fully utilize our investment just three years after our startup to elevate our manufacturing operations to a 24/7 model I believe speaks volumes,” said Xavier Steyaert, Co-CEO, IVC US. “This could not have been accomplished without the meticulous dedication from our operations and manufacturing management teams and the tireless work and commitment from our entire IVC US staff.”
IVC US currently supplies the entire North American market with its fiberglass sheet vinyl. The Dalton plant boasts the longest sheet vinyl line in the world and the most advanced technology and machinery available.
