Global Resources International and its Advanced Products Solutions subsidiary announced plans today to add 100 jobs at the its APS medical manufacturing center in Dothan, Alabama.
The company will also expand in the nearby community of Columbia, investing $1.8 million and creating 10 jobs. The expansions come less than two years after GRI announced plans for the APS facility, which produces personal protective equipment, engineered fabrics and injection-molded medical products, according to company officials.
“These growth plans by Global Resources International and Advanced Product Solutions represent a significant development for the Wiregrass region,” said Greg Canfield, Secretary of the Alabama Department of Commerce. “This expansion will enhance the domestic production of critically needed products for customers in Alabama and the nation, while also solidifying the GRI-APS presence in the Wiregrass.”
GRI, headquartered in Flowery Branch, Georgia, is a privately held manufacturing and supply company specializing in the design, manufacture, sterilization and distribution of products for the health care, industrial and animal care markets.
