Rinnai Is The Latest Company To Add New Manufacturing Facilities In Georgia

Rinnai has long been a staple in Georgia, with its U.S. subsidiary headquartered in Peachtree City. It’s now planning on creating even more economic impact in Georgia as it will create 150 jobs and invest $69 million with the completion of the company’s first U.S. manufacturing facility in Griffin.

Rinnai is most known for its tankless water heaters, the company’s best-selling product in the U.S., and that will be the focus of the new manufacturing facility.

It’s unclear how long it will take Rinnai to get the facility up and running, but the 10-year plan is to create more than 300 new jobs in the Griffin area. 

The manufacturing fundamentals course at Athens Tech is free and replicates a real manufacturing plant's floor operations.

Since we have some lead time before the plant is up and running, now would be a good opportunity to check out all of the training options at your disposal to prepare yourself to work at a Rinnai or other manufacturing plant.

We’ve highlighted some of the manufacturing training programs before. The Manufacturing Fundamentals program in Athens prepares students for entry-level manufacturing work. The proof is in the pudding, and as you can see in the video, the program really works.

There are several additional programs available all over the state. Click this link and register (it’s free!) and start exploring options you have. In many cases you can sign up and attend training sessions or programs at no cost to you.
