Valdosta - A One Georgia Edge Grant means more jobs for South Georgia.

The Valdosta-Lowndes County Development Authority has been awarded $200,000 to help in the construction of a new manufacturing facility located in the Perimeter East Business Park. The new business will manufacture various metal tooling products and bring up to 65 new jobs.

"This will be a great business because it will be large enough to provide jobs and bring in a lot of money to Valdosta and Lowndes County, but it won't be so large that recession could totally destroy it," said Ken Garren, Valdosta-Lowndes County Industrial Authority.

Construction on the new facility is expected to begin in March and be completed by July.
