Gov. Nathan Deal today announced that Georgia-Pacific LLC, a leading supplier of building products and materials, will create 130 jobs and invest $150 million in a new state-of-the-art lumber production facility in Dougherty County.
“We are proud that Georgia-Pacific will expand upon its significant presence here in Georgia,” said Deal. “As one of the nation’s most successful brands, Georgia-Pacific recognizes the benefits of operating in the top state for business. From our highway system that allows trucks to reach 80 percent of the U.S. market in two days to our existing workforce trained for this industry, Georgia offers a wealth of resources to help Georgia-Pacific reach its goals with this new facility. We value Georgia-Pacific’s commitment to creating quality jobs in our state and look forward to further strengthening this partnership in the years to come.”
