ADC To Invest $15M In Blairsville Expansion, Add 65 Jobs

The Blairsville, Georgia, ADC facility is about to get even bigger.

Union County, Georgia is about to have an influx of investment thanks to a recent announcement by Gov. Nathan Deal’s office.

Advanced Digital Cable Inc. (ADC), a leading manufacturer of electronic and communication wire and cable, will create 65 jobs and invest $15 million in a Union County facility expansion. The new jobs will include positions in manufacturing and operations.

“This expansion will enable ADC to better serve our customer base by giving us the capacity to increase the volume of our current product lines made in Blairsville,” said Steve Payne, president of ADC. “ADC expects to add 65 employees with this expansion.”

Georgia has been named the No. 1 state for business by Site Selector Magazine four years in a row, while CNBC named Georgia the No. 2 state for business in the U.S. this month.
