Let's see here... For carpet, here's a list which includes other areas but you will be looking for Dalton, Ringgold, Rome, Calhoun, Chatsworth, Cartersville and Ft Oglethorpe. This will take you basically from Chattanooga to Atlanta down I75 on your tour of mills CARPET MILL LIST

Chattanooga steel mills, Siskin, Alloway and a large amount of fabricators.

We also have Broch/brach candy here in Chattanooga. A couple of chicken processors There's also Little Debbie in Apison/Collegedale.

These are just the office furniture companies, there are also companies that focus on household furniture as well as smaller custom furniture makers.
Great choice, as Grand Rapids is known for having a pretty big furniture manufacturing industry. I think the OP would like it there too.

Thanks

I am getting excited as to have more places to research about moving there.

I just thought there might have been some in North Carolina. I thought I read somewhere that there in Charlotte.

As though I did not figure there were any in the west.

I believe High Point is an area in NC with furniture factories.
