Surya breaks ground on new headquarters
Rug and home décor supplier Surya broke ground Tuesday on its new 1 million-square-foot warehouse and office headquarters in nearby Cartersville, Ga.
Attendees at the groundbreaking ceremony included Surya founder Surya Tiwari, Surya President Satya Tiwari, Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal, Bartow County Commissioner Steve Taylor and Consul General of India Ajit Kumar, along with Surya employees and members of the Cartersville-Bartow County Department of Economic Development.
The facility is expected to be completed by August 2015 with a target move in date of late 2015.
“To optimally serve our customers, we need to not only have the best infrastructure possible for our warehousing operations and logistics but also a central location where our sales and marketing, design, creative, customer service and other teams can easily collaborate,” said Satya Tiwari.
“Our location is ideal because we are able to support economic development in the community by bringing new jobs to the area while making our company more attractive to Atlanta talent due to the shorter commute time. This expansion is beneficial on many levels and we look forward to what the future will bring as we execute on our goal to become a $1 billion company within the next 10 years.”
The new facility is 15 minutes south of Surya’s current U.S. headquarters in Calhoun, Ga., which will continue to be used for warehousing some of the company’s more than 30,000 products.
