Eco-Friendly Construction Company Investing $20 Million for Georgia Facility

03/10/2009
GreenTech Manufacturing, a manufacturer of environmentally sustainable construction products, will invest $20 million to open a manufacturing and distribution facility in Douglas, Georgia, according to the Georgia governor's office. The company expects to create 320 new jobs with the project. "The location's considerable transportation connectivity is ideal for GreenTech's distribution to national and export markets," says Michael Moreland, a company spokesperson. "The local work force is well-trained, and the community has ample access to educational resources for ongoing innovation and job training." GreenTech uses a Powder Impression Molding (PIM) system to produce products made from 95 percent recycled materials from single-stream solid waste sources; the material is considered an eco-friendly alternative to metal, wood, concrete, and fiberglass. The company plans to move into a 103,000-square-foot facility in the Southwest Industrial Park and may be operational as early as September. The governor's office did not release specific information about incentives, but says that several government agencies and the East Central Technical College will work with the company on customized job training.
