Integrated Fiber Solutions (IFS), which produces synthetic bulked continuous filament (BCF) yarns for the carpet, rug, and automotive industries, is expanding in Rome with $30 million in new investments. Governor Kemp made the announcement Tuesday, saying the new additions will bring 40 additional jobs to the area.

“It’s always gratifying to see family-owned Georgia businesses continue to expand and create opportunities in their home state,” Kemp said in a news release. “I’m grateful to Integrated Fiber Solutions for continuing to invest in northwest Georgia and creating great manufacturing jobs for hardworking Georgians in Floyd County and throughout the region.”

Integrated Fiber Solutions will construct a new facility adjacent to their current plant, which is located at 19 Westside Industrial Boulevard in Rome. New job opportunities include management, operator, and mechanic positions.

From the press release:

Integrated Fiber Solutions was established in 1986 to serve the synthetic yarn needs of multiple carpet and rug industries in Georgia. With locations in Rome, Dalton, and Lafayette, the company employs approximately 600 people in northwest Georgia.

“We are very pleased to announce the expansion of Integrated Fiber Solutions Rome manufacturing facility. IFS is adding additional capacity to continue to meet the demand of our customers in multiple market segments. The Rome-Floyd community has supported our efforts for many years, and now we have the opportunity to add jobs and opportunities for workers to grow as our business grows,” said IFS Chief Operating Officer Mark Cook. “IFS will be investing over $30 million for an expansion of multiple phases spanning the next five years, with the addition of approximately 40 new jobs over the course of the project.”
