IVC US announced today it will expand its production of fiberglass sheet vinyl to a 24-hour operation, seven days a week, at the company's Dalton, Ga., 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.

IVC Group was founded in 1997 in Avelgem, Belgium. In 2004, IVC US was incorporated to service the United States and North American markets, and in 2011 IVC opened its first U.S. manufacturing facility and new corporate headquarters in Dalton, Ga.
