New industry to bring at least 60 jobs to Valdosta
June 11, 2008
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.
