Caterpillar to build plant in Georgia, create 4,200 jobs

The Associated Press

ATLANTA (AP) — Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal confirmed that Caterpillar plans to build a new manufacturing facility in Georgia.

Deal said in a statement that Georgia’s business climate offers the logistics, workforce, speed and efficiency that global industries such as Caterpillar are looking for. The statement was distributed to reporters before a Friday morning news conference at the Capitol.

Caterpillar said in a statement Friday morning that its planned one-million-square-foot-facility near Athens is expected to directly employ 1,400 workers once it’s fully operational.

Company officials said they estimate the project will create another 2,800 full-time jobs in the US among suppliers and at other companies.
