ATLANTA -- Loloi will break ground on its new distribution center with a ribbon cutting event on Wednesday during the Atlanta International Area Rug Market, July 11-15, alongside the introduction of several new area rug collections for market-goers.
Loloi will be holding the ground-breaking and ribbon cutting ceremony at the future home of its 650,000 square foot Cartersville facility, announced in April. According to Amir Loloi, founder and president of Loloi, the company's growth has fueled the need for a new facility to help support distribution of product to customers nationwide. In addition, the new facility is estimated to create nearly 200 jobs in the area, and will significantly grow the Loloi team.
"Loloi is thrilled to invest in a brand new distribution facility based in Georgia," said Loloi. "This infrastructural investment will help us better serve our customers, offer speedier delivery to our East Coast customers as well as nationwide, and meet the growing demand for our product."
In addition to readying the facility for its grand opening, Loloi hasn't slowed the pace of its new product roll outs and debuts several new collections in a range of constructions and styles. Added Cyrus Loloi, principal "Loloi has enjoyed significant growth this year, with the introduction of exciting new collections, unique applications and the continued growth of our licensed collections. With the announcement of a new distribution center in Georgia, along with some planned new collaborations, we expect to continue the momentum through the end of the year."
