Governor Nathan Deal just announced that a leading phosphate and fine chemical products producer will be opening its U.S. headquarters and manufacturing plant in Effingham County. Hubei Xingfa Chemicals Group manufactures 70 varieties of products and exports to more than 40 countries world wide.
“We welcome Hubei Xingfa Chemicals Group to Georgia, the gateway to its North American markets,” said Gov. Deal in a press release. “Our outstanding workforce and logistics advantages were a strong selling point, and our meeting with the company today assured its leaders of our commitment to its success.”
The company, Hubei Xinfga Chemicals Group, will create 50 jobs and will begin hiring in 2014. The company will export its products to North American markets through the nearby port of Savannah, the fourth-largest and fastest-growing container port in the U.S.
“Georgia’s pro-business policies coupled with the state’s economic growth create an ideal location for international manufacturing companies, said Chris Cummiskey, commissioner of the Georgia Department of Economic Development. “When its facility opens, Hubei Xingfa will find it has made its North American home in a state with a well-maintained and growing infrastructure and a ready-to-work workforce.”
