Valdosta - Steeda Auto sports is one step closer to opening their doors in South Georgia and creating a lot of jobs for the community.

Steeda, the top manufacturer of high performance vehicles, parts and accessories for Ford, broke ground Friday on their 35 acre property at the Azalea East Industrial Park in Valdosta.

Their new campus will feature a 100 thousand square foot production facility and a 1.2 mile all weather test track.

They say the facility will house state of the art robots and automation making it the most advanced manufacturing and distribution center in the world.

They'll expect to provide 150 jobs but say that number could grow with the company. 

"We are going to expand into the medical field, aerospace and the department of defense as well because since we do have the most advanced technology in manufacturing, we want to go into other markets as well," says Steeda President Dario Orlando.

The facility is expected to open this fall.
