Decostar Industries Invests $26 million To Expand Carrollton, Georgia, Manufacturing Facility
To accommodate growth in its production of interior and exterior auto parts, Decostar plans to build a 64,000-square-foot facility adjacent to the existing operation. The firm currently employs more than 500 workers and will begin hiring for the new positions in the spring of 2013.
“On this project we have been fortunate to collaborate with many talented and committed people and organizations who understand our business and can help achieve common goals,” said Bob Brownlee, president of Magna Exteriors and Interiors. “We are pleased to be able to bring additional jobs and investment to the Carrollton area, and we look forward to continued success in the service of our customers.”
As an incentive Georgia Quick Start, the workforce training program, will assist the company with a customized training program for its new workforce.
“Georgia’s dynamic business infrastructure continues to cultivate a growth environment that attracts and retains world leaders such as Decostar,” said Gov. Nathan Deal. “Our skilled workforce, international logistics network and resources for innovation ensure the state’s competitive position as a stronghold for manufacturing, and will help in our efforts to make Georgia the No. 1 place in the nation to do business.”
“We are very appreciative of the City of Carrollton leadership and the Carrollton Payroll Development Authority for stepping up to make the project work on the community level,” said Daniel Jackson, CEO of Carroll Tomorrow. “This is just another example of our community's ability to be proactive toward our existing industries when creating new jobs.”
“Not only is this expansion a great addition to Georgia’s automotive sector, but Decostar’s expansion is a great example of how foreign direct investment benefits the state and why it’s a strategic focus for us,” said Chris Cummiskey, commissioner of the Georgia Department of Economic Development. “FDI projects tend to pay higher-than-average wages, create high-quality jobs and invest for the long haul.”
