Aremac Heat Treating, LLC is designing a 28,000-square-foot heat treating manufacturing center on 10 acres in Eastman, Georgia, adjacent to Heart of Georgia Regional Airport and Middle Georgia State College’s Aviation Campus. Its new facility, which is in the design-phase and should be completed during the third quarter of this year, is expected to create 60 jobs in Dodge County during the next five years.
This area is home to several other industries serving the aerospace market, representing a growing strategic industry cluster, local officials said. Positioning itself near existing companies such as Dynamic Paint Solutions and Heart of Georgia Metal Crafters, Aremac’s decision to locate adjacent to the Heart of Georgia Airport will continue to strengthen the area’s exposure to the aerospace industry.
“We have finalized our decision to move here. It is nice to be wanted, to be part of a community, where we can join in the moral and social fabric and add to the functioning parts of this community,” stated Denny Butler, Vice President, Aremac Heat Treating, LLC.
“We are delighted to have a new partner and neighbor in Aremac. The quality of new jobs is tremendous. In a few short months, Aremac will be an existing industry, expanding our reach into the aerospace sector, and making it easier to do business in our area on a national scale,” said Judy Hemphill Madden, President and Economic Developer, Eastman-Dodge County Chamber of Commerce.
“We’re pleased to welcome Aremac to the large industry cluster in Dodge County that contributes to Georgia’s leadership in aerospace and other advanced manufacturing sectors,” said Chris Cummiskey, Commissioner of the Georgia Department of Economic Development. “The company will find in Georgia the skilled workers it needs and a dynamic environment in which to grow.”
