A Swiss manufacturer is building a $10 million plant and showroom in Paulding County that will create 60 new jobs.
Interroll said Friday it was building a 93,000-square foot facility in Hiram to make conveyor systems that are found in airports, grocery stores and other facilities.
Paulding County officials said the new plant will become the county's third-largest manufacturer and will employ 70 people overall. It could hire dozens more employees in the next few years, officials said.
The plant will be located in the Paulding County Commerce Park, a 125-acre plot that's near the new Wellstar Paulding Hospital and the Atlanta Film Studio, where parts of the film "42" about baseball legend Jackie Robinson were recently filmed.
"We're on fire out here," said Paulding County Commission chair David Austin.
Jamie Gilbert, the county's economic development director, said the jobs will pay about $18 an hour.
"Paulding County's aggressive approach to this project and others helps make Georgia a competitive place for business," said Chris Cummiskey, the commissioner of Georgia's economic development department. "I'm excited about Interroll's expanded presence in Georgia, and the opportunities to come."
