Today IVC US will host more than 200 people at the official grand opening of its new headquarters, manufacturing facility and distribution center. The event will feature guest speakers, a ribbon cutting and tours of the new facility.

“We are excited to unveil our new home to our customers and community partners,” said Xavier Steyaert, CEO of IVC US.  “Many people have helped take this project from a concept to a realization, and we are now ready to celebrate everyone’s commitment and hard work.”
The construction, codenamed Project Stella, only took 15 months to build.  Situated on a 44 acre plot, the facility encompasses 520,000 square feet, and offers IVC US half a million square feet of future expansion space. Project Stella also spurred economic development, bringing 150 sustainable jobs to the Dalton community.
“The investment that IVC US has made in our community will impact Dalton and Whitfield County for many years to come, said Brian Anderson, President and CEO of the Dalton-Whitfield Chamber of Commerce.  “ We hope that other companies are inspired by IVC’s commitment and growth in Northwest Georgia.”IVC’s dedication to cutting edge technology is evident in the new manufacturing facility.  The plant features the longest vinyl line in the world and is equipped with state-of-the-art machinery.  Green-friendly technology, such as solar panels and a closed loop water recycling system, were incorporated into the design of the new facility.
