Gov. Nathan Deal today announced that Shrivallabh Pittie Group, a leading textile manufacturer in India, will build its first U.S.-based manufacturing facility near Sylvania, creating 250 jobs and investing $70 million.
“The decision by Shrivallabh Pittie Group to locate its new facility in Georgia is an example of how our state is quickly becoming the No.1 state for companies to do business,” Deal said. “The company’s decision to build its first U.S. facility in Georgia underscores our attractive infrastructure and diverse talent pool.”
The facility will be located at the Screven County Industrial Park near Sylvania. The plant will manufacture a range of different counts of carded cotton yarn and production will be flexible in order to meet market demand. It will use class-leading machinery and benefit from great economies of scale as the entire capacity will be based at one location. The company will utilize synergies between the new plant and its existing textile operations, including technical expertise and a global sales and marketing network.
The Screven County Industry Park is a GRAD-certified site, one of more than 30 around the state that offers advanced due diligence for industrial development through the Georgia Allies’ GRAD (Georgia Ready for Accelerated Development) program. Shrivallabh Pittie Group will also take advantage of the services of Georgia Quick Start, an award-winning state program that will provide the company with free, customized workforce training and development.
Founded in 1898, Shrivallabh Pittie Group is a leading textile manufacturer with substantial presence in the Indian textile sector, operating in 13 locations.
