Mannington Mills announced Monday that it will further expand its Madison operations to include expanded facilities that would also, eventually, create another 200 new jobs. According to Betsy Amoroso, director of Corporate Communications, the official announcement of the expansion will come on Thursday, October 30 at 10:30 a.m. during a ribbon cutting ceremony at the recently completed Amtico Road facility. Amoroso said that the ribbon cutting would officially open more than 44,000 square feet of new manufacturing space at the facility. Mannington Mills is a “global leader in the flooring industry, and is the only North American–based company engaged in the manufacturing and marketing of commercial and residential resilient sheet, LVT, VCT, laminate, hardwood and porcelain tile floors, as well as commercial carpet and premium rubber flooring.” In October, 2013 the company broke ground on a $60 million expansion behind its existing Amtico Road facility that, a press release states, “doubled the footprint of the facility… and soon will quadruple Mannington’s domestic manufacturing capacity for luxury vinyl flooring.” Bob Hughes, president of economic development and director of the Madison–Morgan Chamber of Commerce, said the initial expansion was backed by a bond issue through the Development Authority of Morgan County. Hughes said the second expansion will also be backed, in part, by a similar bond issue. The first bond issue was for $60 million, Hughes said. Hughes said the company plans on purchasing and expanding its facilities on a 62 acre tract of land near the existing site. the facility… and soon will quadruple Mannington’s domestic manufacturing capacity for luxury vinyl flooring.” Bob Hughes, president of economic development and director of the Madison–Morgan Chamber of Commerce, said the initial expansion was backed by a bond issue through the Development Authority of Morgan County.
