Foss Manufacturing Company Invests $15 Million In Rome, Georgia, Production Center, Creating 150 Jobs
The company will occupy space once utilized by the former Mohawk building on Huffaker Road. Foss will manufacture and distribute medical masks, hospital apparel and linens at its new production complex, as well as automotive and filtration products.
"We are very excited about our decision to expand our operations and locate in Rome, and look forward to great success," AJ Nassar, Foss CEO said.
"Northwest Georgia remains a strategic home for the textile manufacturing industry, complete with the business environment and skilled workforce to help this industry continue its recovery in our state," said Gov. Nathan Deal. "I am encouraged by the commitment Foss Manufacturing is making in Floyd County, and look forward to the contributions this company will make to one of Georgia's major industries. "
"It is always great news for our community when we secure a new company with such a diverse customer base," said Rome Mayor Evie McNiece. "We are happy that at least 150 people will directly benefit from this positive use of a former manufacturing building."
The Georgia Department of Economic Development said it partnered with the Greater Rome Chamber of Commerce, Rome-Floyd County Development Authority, the Development Authority of Floyd County and the City of Rome to bring Foss Manufacturing to Georgia. As an incentive the firm will receive a tax abatement and is eligible for state tax credits based on job creation.
