“We’re trying to develop, obviously, for people that are either born and raised here or have moved into our community to be able to raise a family and work in Americus. And not think they have to move to a larger city," said Michael.

Company officials explained they will add 20 to 40 new jobs within the first year.

They said they’re expecting to add 60 jobs in total.
