Aspen Aerogels To Create 100 Jobs In Statesboro

Governor Deal’s office announced today that my hometown and current residence of Statesboro will have 100 new jobs created and $70 million invested in it by Aspen Aerogels opening its second manufacturing facility. Aspen Aerogels is a manufacturer of “energy infrastructure insulation used in refineries, petrochemical plants, LNG facilities, power plants and related operations.”

Governor Deal:

“Aspen Aerogels is a major addition to Georgia’s thriving technology industry. The company’s Statesboro location offers close proximity to our top-notch transportation infrastructure and some of our first-class academic institutions. I am confident that our highly-skilled workforce and competitive resources will be uniquely beneficial for Aspen’s growth in Georgia.”


Don Young, President and CEO of Aspen Aerogels:

“The factors we considered to choose Bulloch County as the site for our second manufacturing facility were compelling. The 43-acre Statesboro site is served by rail and provides excellent access to the Port of Savannah. The City of Statesboro and the surrounding region is served by a well-developed technical education system featuring Georgia Southern University, Ogeechee Technical College and East Georgia State College. In addition, the region is home to a strong, available workforce and will provide Aspen with secure and low-cost utilities and good access to critical raw materials. We also received great support from the State of Georgia, Bulloch County and the City of Statesboro. We are excited to become an active member of the local community.”
