Gov. Deal announced today that Bainbridge Manufacturing LLC, which manufactures heating and cooling systems for the automotive industry, will create 100 new jobs in Bainbridge, Georgia. Bainbridge is located in South Georgia near Albany, 230 miles from Atlanta.
The company will invest $10 million into a new headquarters in Bainbridge, that will result in the creation of 100 jobs in the first year, with a total of 240 jobs and $100 million investment over the next 10 years.
"Bainbridge Manufacturing's dedication to the community and research and development speaks volumes not just for the future of Bainbridge, but for Georgia's manufacturing industry as a whole," said Deal. "I have no doubt that our excellent ports coupled with our No. 1 business climate will help Bainbridge Manufacturing better reach customers across the globe."
The company will add 1.6 million square feet to the existing 180,000-square-foot facility that is located at the end of Decatur County Industrial Park. The headquarters will become the primary manufacturing center for the company. As the company relocates equipment from other facilities, the Bainbridge location will begin making filters, expansion vales, blower motors, driers, hoses, seals and cooling fans.
"We believe the best investment we can make is in the community. The resources and potential in Bainbridge are limitless. This, combined with the
pro-business climate in Georgia, creates a formula for success. We look forward to the opportunities that these endeavors will provide," said Abraham Levy, CEO, Bainbridge Manufacturing LLC.
Exporting to more than 37 countries around the globe, the facility will manufacture large heat condensers and smaller automotive heat condensers. In addition, the company will also establish one of the most advanced research and development centers in the industry and will create a 2015 summer internship program for highly motivated high school students to be exposed to robotics and product development. Bainbridge Manufacturing LLC supplies major automotive manufacturers such as Nissan, Toyota, Fiat, GM, CAT and John Deere.
