Airman USA to Continue Operations in new Adairsville Building
Airman USA Corporation has been assembling generators in Adairsville, for the North American market since 2015. Having outgrown leasing space in the Daiki Corporation building, Airman USA has found a long-term home in a new building.
The Cartersville-Bartow County Department of Economic Development are among partners that are happy to announce the retention of Airman USA in Adairsville, Bartow County, Georgia, in a new facility under construction at 95 International Pkwy.
Special thanks are extended to Mr. Joseph Huntemann with Georgia Department of Economic Development, Mr. Grant Cagle with ECG Economic and Community Development, Mr. Dayne Pryor with Panattoni Development, NAI Brannen Goddard, and City of Adairsville officials.
Dayne Pryor, Partner for Panattoni Development Company said, “We are excited to welcome Airman USA, a quality international corporation, to our 225,000 SF Georgia North Business Center in Adairsville. They will be occupying the first 100KSF of this building, which will be a Class A facility delivered in September.”
“We are pleased to see Airman USA expand its presence in Adairsville together with Panattoni Development,” said Adairsville Mayor Kenneth Carson. “We appreciate their investment in our community and look forward to the company’s continued success in their new building.”
With Airman’s headquarters located in Niigata, Japan, it takes pride in being an international company that employs people from all walks of life. Even with less than 20 employees in the Adairsville facility, Airman takes time to effectively equip each person with the necessary skills that contribute to delivering quality products.
Hiroshi Yoshida, President of Airman USA said,” I’m really glad to have been recently appointed as President of this company. There were challenges with the recent COVID-19 outbreak, but we’ve been facing the challenge head-on and retaining all our employees while taking preventive measures against the virus. At the beginning of the year, there were delays in construction of our new factory because of the rain, but now that we see smooth progress, we are really excited about continuing operations in this new space. We will keep working hard toward our goal of getting a larger market share in the North American market.”
“Airman’s expansion in Adairsville is not only a testament to the logistics, workforce and business environment the State of Georgia provides, but to how we work hand-in-hand with our local communities and existing industries, helping smooth the path to success,” said Georgia Department of Economic Development Commissioner Pat Wilson. “I’d like to thank Airman for continuing to invest in Georgia and our partners at the Cartersville-Bartow County Department of Economic Development for fostering a long-lasting international partnership with Airman that is continuing to deliver jobs and opportunities to the local community.”
