Adel -- A European-based concrete company has chosen South Georgia as its home as they expand into the U. S.  Xella International is the world's largest manufacturer of autoclaved aerated concrete and has just opened up a plant in Adel.

The plant will produce panels for walls, floors, and roofs for retail, commercial and residential construction projects. Xella generated sales of over 1 billion euros in 2006 alone, and is excited to now bring their industry to Georgia.

"The state of Georgia was very forward thinking in getting business to the area and Cook County is one of the largest growing counties in the state, and Xella liked it due to the close access to I-75," said the company's Florida Territory Manager John Crawford.

The plant has hired 55 employees and hopes to double that by the end of 2008. They will be holding an open house and tour Wednesday morning at 11.
