Steves & Sons Plans Jackson County, Georgia, Millwork Factory

Steves & Sons, Inc., a high volume and family-owned millwork manufacturer, will establish operations in Jackson County, Georgia. The more than $100 million project is expected to create 170 jobs over the next three years.

Located near US-441 and Athens, the 310,000-square-foot facility will produce millions of interior molded door skins annually for use in new housing construction, repair, and remodeling. This is the company’s second expansion announcement in Georgia in the last year.

"Georgia has proven to be extremely helpful to Steves for our long-term manufacturing and distribution needs," said Edward Steves, CEO of Steves & Sons.

Global Commerce Senior Project Manager Kristen Miller represented the Georgia Department of Economic Development (GDEcD) in partnership with the Jackson County Area Chamber of Commerce and Georgia Quick Start.

"We are thrilled that Steves & Sons is already expanding their footprint in Georgia with the announcement of this new facility in Jackson County," noted GDEcD Commissioner Pat Wilson. "I am confident they will continue to find success here as they take advantage of one of our state’s greatest economic development assets, Georgia Quick Start, to fill these newly created positions. Congratulations to the Jackson County economic development team for locating this fantastic project."

For over 156 years, Steves & Sons, Inc. has provided quality products for homes, with an emphasis on doors, and continues to build its business and reputation among builders and homeowners nationwide. This will be the company’s second expansion in Georgia in the last year.

"We have worked long and hard to make Jackson County a place where both businesses and people want to be, and Steve & Sons' decision to locate in Jackson County is proof of that," added Scott Martin, Chairman of the Jackson County Industrial Development Authority. "Our business climate is absolutely thriving. We are very excited to welcome Steve & Sons, Inc. to Jackson County!"
