Ecolab will invest $16 million dollars and create over 60 new jobs. The company will be leasing a new 350k square foot building.
Ecolab first began operations in Henry County in 1988. They have operated a manufacturing facility off highway 155 since then. The company produces cleaning and hygiene products. In addition, they employ over one-hundred employees at the site.
“We at HCDA are excited about this new investment by Ecolab. For many years Ecolab has manufactured products in Henry County that help keep all of us safe. With the recent events of COVID-19, their operations in Henry County are even more critical. We are proud they continue to choose Henry,” said Chairman for the Henry County Development Authority Pierre Clements.
Southern Gateway at Lambert Farms has plans to build four buildings. Presently, Building B is home to Purple mattress and Incora. The building measures 1.1 million square feet of space. It recently sold for $103 million dollars in September.
