High priority company eyes Valdosta

July 18, 2007

Valdosta - The Valdosta Industrial Authority say the city's explosive growth is helping them recruit high priority industries to town.

One of them could be a Fortune 100 company.

They say Valdosta is one of three cities being considered.

The facility would be located in the Azalea Industrial Park West and would create hundreds of new jobs.  "The project would potentially bring up to 300 new jobs, about an 11 million dollar investment and the fact that a Fortune 100 company is looking at our region is a good sigh of our local economy," says Brad Lofton of the Valdosta-Lowndes Industrial Authority.

The company is also considering Montgomery, Alabama and Perry, Georgia.

They expect to make a decision by the end of the month.
