SKC Inc. Investing $100M in Covington, Georgia

SKC Inc., a maker of polyester films, is expanding in Covington, Georgia, with a $100 million investment that will create 120 jobs, the Rockdale Citizen reports.

"Since opening its headquarters here in Georgia in 1999, SKC Inc. has been a valued member of the manufacturing community in our state," said Governor Sonny Perdue. "I am excited to see SKC expand the scope of its business in Georgia and continue to create jobs that positively impact our state's economy."

The company will build a 200,000-square-foot facility to produce plastic film parts for the solar panel industry.

Georgia offered SKC $8.5 million in incentives to expand in its home city. The company also considered site sin Arizona and California.
