Home Fashions International is expanding its operations in Cherokee county in Georgia State in the United States with an investment of $5.5 mn. The company has purchased a new, 350,000-sqr-foot facility at Gaffney in South Carolina to accommodate its expansion that is expected to quadruple its business over the next five years and create 60 jobs.

The new facility, known as Gaffney Manufacturing, will allow the company to reduce its reliance on imported and out-of-state raw materials, according to a report from the South Carolina department of commerce. Since 1994, Home Fashions International has been in operation as a supplier of home textile finished products, decorative pillows, comforter sets, drapery and outdoor cushions.
