Georgia Carpet-Maker Closes, Cutting 192 Jobs
ROYSTON, Ga. (AP) — Beaulieu of America says it's closing its carpet fiber plant in Royston next month, eliminating 192 jobs.
Beaulieu, which is based in Dalton, plans to stop production Nov. 26 at the Royston plant, where spun yarn is manufactured.
The plant ranks among Franklin County's 10 largest employers.
Beaulieu bought the Royston plant in 1985. The facility has operated under different names since the early 1950s.
