Thomasville- A major furniture distribution center opens in Southwest Georgia. Governor Roy Barnes says, "This center will bring an initial $18 million investment to Thomas County, that will attract new business and new residents and investments to this area."
American Signature Furniture has hundreds of job openings. The old Helig-Meyers building in Thomasville was renovated with a one-point two million dollar One-Georgia Grant.
The building in the Plantation Oak Industrial Park is the new home of American Signature Furniture Distribution Center. The building could house up to 250 employees and an additional building will add at least 200 more jobs.
Governor Barnes says the furniture company will add 20 more retail stores in Georgia. He explains, "This distribution center will provide the company a platform to expand its retail furniture business in Southeast. In addition the 530,000 square foot facility will have generated significant investment and new economic development in the area."
American Signature Furniture is adding a bedding plant in Albany and an upholstery plant in Moultrie.
