The industrial boom continues in Bryan County
BRYAN COUNTY, Ga. (WTOC) – Bryan County continues its industrial boom following a string of new production announcements.
Earlier this week, executives held a groundbreaking ceremony for a new commercial center.
Construction of the Georgia International Commerce Center is underway. It is a new complex that is expected to attract even more industrial partners to the north end of Bryan County.
Officials don’t expect the manufacturing boom to slow anytime soon.
The construction of this commercial center is the latest in a series of industry announcements for the county.
Earlier this week, Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp announced that apparel company Komar Brands will build a distribution center in Bryan County.
Before that, ammunition manufacturer Norma Precision will also establish a manufacturing facility in Bryan County.
Taken together, the two projects are expected to bring in investments of 147 million US dollars and create almost 900 jobs in total.
County development agency officials say these projects were years in the making.
They say they are keen to bring in industrial partners and the new commercial center is helping to achieve that goal.
“The more land or industrial facilities we have on-site and ready to move into, the better chance we have of being able to locate these industrial partners in Bryan County and create the jobs that come with bringing these industrial partners into the county,” he said Jon Seagraves, Chief Executive of the Bryan County Development Authority.
The Georgia International Commerce Center will consist of 12 buildings totaling 6.5 million square feet. The first building should be ready for occupancy by July 2023.
