We’re excited to be creating so many new jobs for Henry County residents and look forward to welcoming them to the Radial team.”

“We are excited that Radial, Inc. has chosen Locust Grove as the home for its new supply-chain facility,” said Mayor Robert Price of Locust Grove. “In addition to the new investment and the 344 full-time employees, a surge of more than 1,000 seasonal positions will also provide a great economic boost to our existing retail power centers during various times of the year, including the holiday season, along with the additional $19 million in payroll and $3 million in sales taxes for a majority of our city's businesses.”

“As our existing industries continue to expand in every corner of our state, Radial’s further investments in Georgia are a testament to our unmatched logistics infrastructure and top-notch workforce,” said Governor Brian P. Kemp. “I am confident Radial will find success as they open this new fulfillment center in Locust Grove, helping them better serve their clients across the country. I appreciate their partnership, and look forward to seeing the opportunities this creates for hardworking Georgians in Henry County.”

“We’re excited to welcome Radial to Locust Grove in Henry County.

We appreciate our continued partnership with the City of Locust Grove to bring positive economic impact to our community."

“Georgia’s long-term investments in the state’s logistics infrastructure continue to pay off in the form of jobs and opportunities for Georgians, especially as e-commerce continues to grow,” said GDEcD Commissioner Pat Wilson. “I’m grateful to Radial, Inc. for their commitment to Georgia. I’m also very grateful for Governor Kemp and our economic development partners who continue to help further cement the state’s position as an international leader in logistics.”
