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.
