Aalto Scientific, a leading manufacturer in the medical diagnostics industry, will invest $9 million to establish a manufacturing, production and warehouse facility in Eatonton, Georgia, creating 80 jobs in the region.
The planned construction will be the first project to locate to Rock Eagle Technology Park, a 150-acre development park located at 1100 Madison Road. Aalto Scientific will construct a 76,000-square-foot production and warehouse facility, as well as a 15,000-square-foot manufacturing facility to house its subsidiary, AUDIT MicroControlstm, Inc.
“We are moving our corporate headquarters and manufacturing facility to Georgia in order to grow our business,” said Steve Mauro, Owner of Aalto Scientific.
“Aalto Scientific’s expansion in Georgia demonstrates the strength and vitality of our life sciences sector,” said Governor Nathan Deal. “Manufacturing is a key element in this industry and in maintaining Georgia as the No. 1 state in which to do business. This project shows our continued commitment to the companies and workforce that call our state home and I am proud that Aalto Scientific chose to locate here.”
“We are very excited that Aalto Scientific has chosen Eatonton-Putnam County as the location to build its new corporate headquarters and manufacturing facility,” said Bill Sharp, Chairman of the Putnam Development Authority. “We hope Aalto Scientific is just the first of many companies to locate in the Rock Eagle Technology Park.”
