140 jobs coming to Grady County

September 21, 2006

Cairo-  One hundred and forty  jobs will stay in Georgia when a south Georgia industry moves to Grady County. 

This cotton field on Alton Hall Road was just added to the Cairo industrial Park and will be home to the new, yet to be named business. The business will move to Grady County from another south Georgia location, but also considered a move to Dothan, Alabama. Grady County enticed the company with more than 26 acres. 

"Our proximity to Georgia, Florida, and Alabama was big, and our demographics here were just a pretty good fit too," said Rick McCaskill, Joint Development Authority. 

Many employees are expected to keep their jobs and commute to the new location.
