Bainbridge Manufacturing LLC, a privately held automotive manufacturer, will invest $10 million into a new headquarters in Decatur County. The project will create 100 jobs in the first year, with a total of 240 jobs and $100 million investment over the next 10 years.
“Bainbridge Manufacturing’s dedication to the community and research and development speaks volumes not just for the future of Bainbridge, but for Georgia’s manufacturing industry as a whole,” Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal said in a statement. “I have no doubt that our excellent ports coupled with our No. 1 business climate will help Bainbridge Manufacturing better reach customers across the globe.”
The company will add an additional 1.6 million square feet to the existing 180,000-square-foot facility that is located at the end of Decatur County Industrial park. Upon completion, the headquarters will become the primary manufacturing center for the company. As the company relocates equipment from other facilities, the Bainbridge location will begin making filters, expansion vales, blower motors, driers, hoses, seals and cooling fans.
