DALTON, Ga. (AP) -- Shaw Industries says it is changing production at a Calhoun plant, resulting in 125 job cuts.
The Dalton-based company said Tuesday it will contract with a Calhoun-based company for cutting, sewing and packaging at rug facility Plant 7G, allowing Shaw to focus on tufting, dyeing and coating. Shaw did not identify the company that will assume the Plant 7G duties.
The company said it hoped to place affected employees at other Shaw locations.
The company said in a news release, "Current market conditions, among other factors, make it difficult to predict how many displaced people may be successfully place during the coming months."
