The Georgia Department of Economic Development (GDEcD) today announced that VINTECH INDUSTRIES (VINTECH), a leading Tier Two Supplier to the Global Automotive Industry, will make a significant investment in Newnan following the purchase of a facility in the South Newnan Industrial Park. Slated to begin production in the first quarter of 2019, the project will initially create approximately 30 jobs.
“We are truly excited about expanding our operations into Georgia,” says Jim Schoonover, President and CEO of VINTECH. “We have been exploring the Southeast as our next area for growth and the support we received from the GDEcD, Coweta County, and programs like Quick Start, made the decision easy. We look forward to growing our business and the workforce in Newnan.”
The opening of this new facility parallels the increasing demand and growth VINTECH has been experiencing in the past decade as customers open new manufacturing plants and expand in the southeast. This expansion is part of the overall company’s strategy of supporting their customers across the world.
“The Development Authority wants to thank VINTECH INDUSTRIES for choosing to locate in Coweta County,” said Coweta County Development Authority President Trae Westmoreland. “Through a competitive process, Coweta County was able to show that our community is pro-business, could meet their skilled workforce needs and provide a location in close proximity to Tier 1 Suppliers. As a targeted industry, VINTECH’s decision acknowledges that our regional economic characteristics and resources match well.”
