Major Economic Development - But Something Even More Interesting Disclosed

Sources: Georgia lands Sentury Tire's $500 million-plus U.S. manufacturing plant

The first phase of the Sentury Tire expansion would involve a more than $500 million investment and the creation of more than 600 jobs, sources said. When fully built-out, the investment could rise to $1 billion and the workforce would swell to “several thousand.”

The plant would bring about 100 research and development jobs and include a “proving ground' — a secure track where companies test prototypes and unreleased products.
And, it’s not just blue-collar factory jobs that are landing in the state. Porsche Cars North America and Mercedes-Benz USA are headquartered in Atlanta. BMW, meanwhile, is said to be scouting sites around Atlanta, sources said.
