Freedom Trailers expanding S. Georgia plant

Christopher Seward

Freedom Trailers, a cargo trailer manufacturer, plans to expand a plant in Atkinson County in South Georgia and create 75 jobs.

When the $1.5 million expansion in Willacoochee is completed, the plant will employ 160, according to the state Department of Economic Development. The town is about three hours south of Atlanta, just southeast of Tifton.

Freedom Trailers produces cook and concession trailers. The 44,000-square-foot plant expansion is expected to be completed in June.
