ATLANTA (AP) — Documents filed with a state agency show that a carpet company expects to invest $350 million to complete one of two new factories planned for Georgia.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports (http://bit.ly/12oBU4y ) that Engineered Floors filed documents with the Department of Community Affairs saying the project should generate almost $7 million a year in local sales and property tax revenue.

The planned facility is a 2 million-square-foot manufacturing center. The Calhoun-based company in May announced that it would build two new plants in northwest Georgia. It has said it will hire 2,400 workers at the plants in Whitfield and Murray counties.
