Jindal Films Americas LLC, one of the world’s largest producers of specialty films for packaging and labels, will relocate its U.S. research and development center and headquarters to LaGrange, Gov. Nathan Deal announced Thursday.
The move will bring 240 jobs and a $180 million investment to Troup County, he said.
"Manufacturing is a key element in maintaining Georgia as the No. 1 state in which to do business," Deal said. "This demonstrates our continued commitment to companies already located in Georgia and those ready for expansion to a business-friendly environment."
JFA currently employs 200 employees in Georgia.
The relocation is expected to create high-paying positions in manufacturing, research and development and management.
