On April 29, 2010, executives from LG Hausys America and a host of state and local officials joined together to celebrate the groundbreaking of the company’s new manufacturing facility in Adairsville in Gordon County, Georgia.  This facility expands LG Hausys America’s operations in Georgia, and will be located adjacent to the company’s existing plant.  Initially announced in February of this year, this project will create 80 new jobs and represents a $50 million investment.

 

At the company’s expanded facility, LG Hausys will manufacture engineered stone countertops, which represents a new venture for the company in Georgia.  Currently the company manufactures high-quality solid surface countertops at its existing manufacturing operation in Gordon County.

 

“Since the mass production of ‘HI-MACS®’ started in 1995 in the United States, LG Hausys has become a representative maker of Surfaces materials.  We plan to solidify its market dominance by launching new products and expanding applications,” said Mr. Seogseung Hong, President of LG Hausys America, Inc.

 

The new LG Hausys plant in Adairsville will be an approximately 95,000-square-foot facility.  Employees hired for the newly created jobs will all work in the company’s expanded operations, with hiring expected to begin in the third quarter of 2010.  The company will collaborate with Quick Start, Georgia’s nationally recognized workforce training program, to expedite the training schedule for workers hired at the new facility.  Quick Start provides customized workforce training free-of-charge as an incentive for companies to create new jobs in Georgia.

 

Gray Construction, ranked 9th among the U.S. Top Manufacturing Plant Contractors, will provide architectural, civil and structural engineering services and construction management for this project.
