The Georgia Department of Economic Development (GDEcD) announced that Loloi Inc., a wholesaler of rugs and other home furnishing, will create 198 jobs in a Cartersville distribution facility to support its recent growth.
“We take pride in the diversity of industries in Georgia,” said GDEcD Commissioner Pat Wilson. “As we welcome Loloi to our business community, I am confident that top-notch logistics infrastructure and top-ranked workforce, will prove beneficial as the company builds a home in Georgia.”
Headquartered in Dallas, Loloi currently has five U.S. showrooms located in Dallas; High Point, North Carolina; Las Vegas; New York; and Atlanta. Loloi offers a comprehensive collection of rugs at all construction and quality levels.
Loloi will offer expanded home furnishing categories in decorative pillows and throws. The Bartow County facility will sit on approximately 59 acres, and is around 647,000 square feet.
“Loloi is thrilled to invest in a brand-new distribution facility based in Georgia,” said Amir Loloi, founder and president of Loloi Inc. “This infrastructural investment will help us better serve our customers and meet the growing demand for our product. The Bartow County workforce and logistics infrastructure are an ideal match for our business.”
GDEcD Project Manager Hank Evans represented the Global Commerce division in partnership with the Development Authority of Bartow County, Georgia Power and the Metro Atlanta Chamber.
“Loloi’s decision to invest in Bartow County and the metro region reflects the strength of our business community,” said Hala Moddelmog, president and CEO of the Metro Atlanta Chamber. “Across the region’s ecosystem, our leaders make it a point to support the growth of our industries, from infrastructure, workforce, supply chain and beyond. We are excited to welcome Loloi into this community of leaders.”
“I would like to welcome Loloi to Bartow County, and believe that they will be successful in the good business climate the community is working hard to strategically create,” said Bartow County Sole Commissioner Steve Taylor. “Beyond just location advantages, we believe that investments made in infrastructure, quality workforce and collaboration among partners continues to benefit job seekers in the area. I’d like to thank all involved in this good news, particularly the company.”
