Jaipur moves Atlanta Headquarters to Cherokee 75 Corporate Park
Cherokee County, GA (February 2, 2015)- Jaipur Living Inc. (Jaipur), a company specializing in rugs, throws, pillows and more, has announced their move to Cherokee 75 Corporate Park. With the plans to relocate their Atlanta Headquarters, currently in Norcross, the company will be building a new facility in the southwest Cherokee park. “Our company has grown tremendously over the last few years. Our new facility in Cherokee County will allow us to better serve our customers worldwide and sustain that growth. We are excited to be a part of Cherokee County and appreciate all the efforts of the Cherokee Office of Economic Development in making this a reality.” – Asha Chaudhary, President.
Through the purchase of 23-acres of land, the company will construct a 180,000 sq. ft. facility expandable to over 300,000 sq. ft. The first phase will be over double the size of their current Norcross facility. Jaipur has contracted with Pattillo Construction for the building of their concrete tilt-up structure. Nathan Anderson of NAI Brannen Goddard was the broker for this deal and was critical in bringing the company to Cherokee.
The project will take place in two phases with a total capital investment of $22.3 million. This relocation will bring approximately 100 jobs to Cherokee with an average wage of $52,000 per year. The company plans to add 10-15 jobs per year over the next three years. This is another win for the Cherokee 75 Corporate Park and the Cherokee Office of Economic Development (COED), who has experienced a great amount of growth and success over the past year in southwest Cherokee. “A lot of pieces went in to ensuring Jaipur’s move to Cherokee. It was truly a team effort, and we are thrilled to welcome Jaipur to Cherokee 75 Corporate Park,” said Marshall Day, COED Chairman.
Founded in 1978 in India, Jaipur went from the humble beginning with only two looms to being known as one of the largest exporters of rugs in India. Headquartered in Atlanta, they have continued to grow and design beautiful product. In recent news, Jaipur announced a partnership with Kate Spade New York creating iconic designs for the well-known brand. “Jaipur is a motivated company with an innovative mindset,” said Misti Martin, COED President. “They are a welcomed addition to Cherokee, and we look forward to watching them thrive in our community.”
Jaipur already has ties to the Cherokee community with Woodstock Furniture Outlet being a vendor of their products and having recently partnered with Canton based Grant Design Collaborative to create a new line of their rugs.
