Troy Acoustics Corporation, a sound solutions and engineering company, will establish a manufacturing facility in Thomas County, Georgia. The $40 million project is expected to create 88 jobs.
The new facility will be located at the Red Hills Business Park, a Georgia Ready for Accelerated Development certified site. Operations are expected to begin in 2024.
"We’re excited about building our facility in Thomasville," said Troy Acoustics Founder and CEO Bill Bergiadis. "Everything from the skilled labor pool to the locally sourced raw materials we need to the wonderful local support we’ve received adds up to a winning formula for Troy."
Founded in 2004, Troy Acoustics offers site-specific design solutions and installations of acoustical systems across industries, from military to educational to broadcast and more. The company’s cementitious wood-wool acoustic boards have no off-gassing of VOCs and are sustainably sourced from local, renewable forests.
"Innovative companies like Troy Acoustics are what make Georgia a unique and diverse state to do business, and we are excited to welcome one of the only manufacturing facilities of its kind in the U.S.," said GDEcD Commissioner Pat Wilson. "Considering our booming film industry and soundstage spaces, Troy Acoustics is a perfect fit. We look forward to the company’s products being used in future Georgia-lensed productions, and we congratulate our partners in Thomasville and Thomas County for creating jobs and opportunities for their community through their support of Georgia businesses!"
Assistant Director of Existing Industries Tina Herring represented the Georgia Department of Economic Development’s (GDEcD) Global Commerce team in partnership with the Thomasville Payroll Development Authority and the City of Thomasville.
"We have been working with Troy Acoustics since January 2020 after meeting Bill and his team at a trade convention, and we couldn’t ask for a better outcome," added President and CEO of the Thomasville Payroll Development Authority Shelley Zorn. "In early 2023, Red Hills Business Park will welcome its newest tenant as construction begins, and workers will begin to fill the facility in 2024. The products made in Thomas County will go on to support economic growth across the state."
