Global Resources International is a company dedicated to developing high-quality personal protective equipment for workers. This is especially important for workers who work in riskier environments. Originally based in Flowery Branch, Georgia, they now serve places all over the world, including countries like China and India.
Now, they will invest $9.5 million to open a new location soon in Dothan, Alabama. This will allow them to put their efforts toward developing more protective products. These will include using injection molding for non-medical supplies, and underpads for humans and animals. In the process, it will also create about 70 new jobs in Houston County. This will provide an economic boost and up employment rates while helping provide to other workers all around.
