IVC US announced today it is adding a third shift and boosting its Dalton, Ga., staff by another 30 employees.
The Belgium owned vinyl-floor making firm, which opened a plant in Dalton a year ago, said the additional shift will extend production from three days a week to five days a week.
“We are starting 2012 in the most exciting way possible – with growth,” Xavier Steyaert, CEO of IVC US, said today in a statement. “This announcement is the first of many exciting things to come from IVC US this year.”
IVC Group was founded in 1997 in Avelgem, Belgium. In 2004, the privately-held firm incorporated IVC US to serve the North American market. The company opened its first U.S. manufacturing facility in Dalton in January 2011.
“Last year, we opened our new plant and U.S. headquarters, hired more than 100 new employees of which Paul Murfin as our new president and launched Flexitec V and Itec Contract Floors,” Steyaert said. “This year we will show the industry that IVC US is the future of resilient flooring.”
