Wittek Industries Plans Lyons, Georgia, Manufacturing Plant

Wittek Industries, a company that produces equipment and supplies for owners of driving ranges, golf courses, miniature golf courses, and pro shops, has invested $1.5 million in expanding their manufacturing operations to Lyons, Georgia. The project is expected to create 50 jobs in Toombs County.

The expansion will allow Wittek to expand on growing their custom flag and apparel departments. Golf flags, accessories, and apparel for the company’s national and global customers will be produced at the Lyons location.

“We are extremely excited about our expansion in Lyons. Not only does it allow us to provide jobs to the hardworking people in Georgia, but it will help Wittek Industries elevate to the next level,” said Gene Pruban, president of Wittek Industries. “We want to continue our growth and we know that the possibilities are endless with the brand new facility and equipment. We pride ourselves on investing in our business and employees, and our ‘promote from within’ mindset has allowed us to get to where we are today. We would also like to thank the city of Lyons, Toombs County, and the State of Georgia for being so welcoming.”

Project Manager Elizabeth McLean represented the Georgia Department of Economic Development’s (GDEcD) Global Commerce division on this project in partnership with the Toombs County Development Authority, the Georgia Department of Labor, and the Southeastern Technical College.

“Demand for outdoor recreational sports and activities has increased dramatically this year, and we have continued to see that translate into quality advanced manufacturing jobs for Georgians,” said GDEcD Commissioner Pat Wilson. “I extend my sincere thanks to Wittek Industries for their continued investment in Toombs County, and for their long-term commitment to the community. Additionally, I appreciate our local economic development partners in Lyons and Toombs County for their leadership on the project.”
