Deal: Japan-based company to create 80 jobs in Griffin

Japan-based Toppan Printing Co., Ltd will create 80 jobs and invest $100 million into a new facility at The Lakes at Green Valley in Griffin, Georgia’s first eco-friendly park.

“The economic impact from our solid business ties with Japan is significant when market-leading companies such as Toppan Printing choose Georgia,” Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal said in a news release. “Because this is the second Japan-based company to locate to this area, it’s clear our state is the ideal location for advanced manufacturing. I have no doubt that our highly skilled talent pool and advanced R&D resources will keep Toppan competitive in the global economy.”

The roughly 127,000-square-foot facility will bolster the company’s capacity to supply transparent barrier films to packaging manufacturers in North America and Europe. The manufacturing facility will produce unique packaging solutions for food, medical and electronic applications. Upon completion, the facility will be the company’s first transparent barrier film manufacturing site outside of Japan.
