September 2017 Group Watch: GP Announces New Facility

Georgia-Pacific announced a new lumber facility in Talladega that will bring in 100 full time jobs. Construction on the new $100 million lumber production facility is expected to begin in late 2018. Georgia-Pacific will be using the former plywood plant that closed in 2008 as the location for the new facility. The construction period, set for 12 months, will provide for around 120 people a day. Officials from the company said the availability of talent and natural resources makes Talladega an ideal site for the new lumber-production facility. They go on to say that the City of Talladega, Talladega County and the State of Alabama have been supportive of this new venture. Gov. Ivey was present for the announcement.
