Valdosta - Construction is underway on a top-secret industry that will bring jobs to south Georgia.

The Valdosta-Lowndes County Industrial Authority calls it Project Clinton.

That's a code name because they say they can't release the company's name yet.

They tell us it's a $12 million investment that will create 60 jobs just to start.

They say location was a big factor in choosing Valdosta.

"We are blessed again with the best location in the country and strategically this was a great fit for them, for their consumer base, our proximity to the interstate and that we are in a park with other Fortune 100 companies," says Brad Lofton, Executive Director of the Industrial Authority.

The Industrial Authority expects to announce the company's name in the next 60-days.
