Welcome to Greater Dalton







Around here, open for business is not just a sign on a storefront window or a slogan we attach to a slick marketing campaign. In Dalton, its a phrase that encompasses our daily mindset, one that is as firmly rooted in the town as the mountains that surround us.

It is this mindset that made Dalton the Carpet Capital of the World, and what continues to fuel us as one of the nations premiere hubs for manufacturing activity and industrial innovation.

However, even as the carpet and floor-covering industry continues to employ thousands of people in the area and pump millions of dollars into our schools, local governments and services agencies, we know that we have to continue to attract new businesses in order to keep growing.

While we are marketing the area as an ideal location for new business as well as manufacturing facilities, our Joint Development Authority and County Government have partnered to create a new industrial park located alongside Interstate 75- the business commercial corridor in the United States.

Dalton and Whitfield County are also investing millions in new schools, park, and green-spaces to make sure that our public education systems and quality of life remain second to none in the South.

In Dalton, we are open for business. We have a wonderful story to tell, and we welcome you to be a part of it.
