Southern Ionics, a Mississippi-based chemical manufacturer, will create 125 jobs and invest more than $100 million in Charlton, Brantley and Pierce counties over the next two years.
“Georgia’s competitive business climate is the ideal location for this company to grow and prosper,” Gov. Nathan Deal said in a statement. “I am confident that the ready-to-work citizens in these counties will further the success of Southern Ionics’ three facilities.”
The company has just completed the construction of the Mission South Mine in Charlton County, which will soon be joined by the adjacent Mission North Mine in Brantley County and a mineral sand processing plant in Pierce County. By mid-2015, 125 people will be employed at the three facilities.
