The Henry County Development Authority announced on Wednesday, October 14, that Incora, a global aerospace supply chain company, will be expanding in McDonough. The company, formerly Wesco Aircraft, established operations in Henry County in 2012.
The expansion will result in 70 new jobs and represents an investment of $13 million dollars.
Incora will lease 250,000 square feet at the existing spec building at Southern Gateway at Lambert Farms — located off state route 42 at King Mill Road. The 1.1 million square feet building was completed in 2019.
In the development authority’s press release, Authority Chairman Pierre Clements said “Henry County is primed for success in the Aerospace industry given our central location to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport and other major aerospace centers including Robins Airforce Base and Dobbins Air Reserve base.”
This year, over 2,500 new jobs have been announced in Henry County. Purple Innovation, Inc., known for their Purple mattress, announced in July they will be locating their first manufacturing facility on the east coast at Lambert Farms. Their project will create an estimated 360 jobs.
The largest announcement, Zinus USA, Inc., will create 804 jobs and invest $108 million dollars at the former Toys R Us distribution center on highway 42. Zinus will develop their first North American advanced manufacturing facility at the location.
