Komar Brands Plans Bryan County, Georgia, Manufacturing-Distribution Complex

Komar Brands, a global apparel company, will establish a manufacturing and distribution facility in Bryan County, Georgia. The $87 million project is expected to create 294 jobs.

The new facility will be located at Interstate Centre 3, a Georgia Ready for Accelerated Development (GRAD) Certified site.

"Komar is pleased to be partnering with Georgia to establish this new manufacturing and distribution center, which is an important part of our strategic vision," said Charlie Komar, President and CEO of Komar. "We are looking forward to breaking ground in the very near future and appreciate all the assistance and cooperation to make this project come to fruition."

Established in 1908, Komar is a global apparel products company, specializing in the design, marketing, sourcing, and distribution of sleepwear, loungewear, intimates, and layering products. The company represents more than 100 lifestyle brands and licenses through their retail partners, which sell worldwide at every price point.

"We’re excited to welcome a well-established company like Komar to Georgia, and we look forward to a long-lasting relationship between the company and community," noted GDEcD Commissioner Pat Wilson. "Our consistent economic policy and dedication to speed-to-market solutions have made Georgia a dynamic place to grow. We’re grateful for the strong partnerships between our local communities and the Georgia Ports Authority that make doing business in Georgia easier for companies like Komar."

Regional Project Manager Dorie Bacon represented the Georgia Department of Economic Development’s (GDEcD) Global Commerce team in partnership with the Development Authority of Bryan County, Georgia Ports Authority, and Georgia Quick Start.

"Komar is a welcome addition to our existing industry base in Bryan County," added Development Authority of Bryan County Chairman Jon Seagraves. "Our staff sourced this lead at the Georgia Port Authority’s Georgia Foreign Trade Conference three years ago, and we are excited that the work done over the last several years has resulted in such a great project."
