Interfor is a lumber company, and one of the largest producers of lumber in the state of Right to Work Georgia. And, they are still growing! In fact, they are planning an expansion in Perry, Georgia. In order to cover the cost, they are investing $30 million toward the project. This will help increase sawmill operations here. Given the investment toward the state’s economy, this will be a good addition to the area!
From Area Development Magazine:
“We are excited to further invest in the Perry team and community. This operation has a dedicated and proven team of employees with a history of success with upgrade work. […] The expansion will increase consumption of the timber resource and provide economic benefits to the broader community.” […]
“I extend my thanks to the Interfor team for doubling down on their investment in the Perry community and for continuing to support the state’s foresters. […] I also extend my thanks to our partners at the Houston County Development Authority for their continued support of industry and work to strengthen the local economy.” […]
“On behalf of the Development Authority of Houston County, along with our partners, the Houston County Commissioners and the City of Perry, we are so pleased to see this additional investment from Interfor Corporation.
