Charlie spotted this announcement on Governor Nathan Deal’s Facebook page:
Gov. Deal today announced that automotive industry supplier voestalpine Metal Forming will build a manufacturing facility in Bartow County creating 220 jobs for Georgians. The company, investing $62 million in this new facility, will be its first in the Southeast. “Voestalpine’s decision to locate here continues us on our path of making Georgia the No.1 place in the nation to do business,” said Deal. “I am glad to welcome this company to Georgia’s growing community of auto industry suppliers and look forward to a great partnership.”
Congrats to the folks in Bartow County and a warm welcome to the folks of Voestalpine Metal Forming. Hopefully the Georgia General Assembly will work towards meaningful tax reform next year, and perhaps we’ll see an increase in announcements of businesses moving into and expanding in our great state.
