Bryan County to get new industry

Written by  Wednesday, 23 July 2014 09:53

  Governor Nathan Deal announced Tuesday that West Penn Testing Group, a state-of-the-art material testing services provider, will locate to Ellabell, creating 70 jobs and investing $3 million into a facility over the next five years. 

 

  West Penn Testing Group selected Bryan County’s Interstate Center industrial park as its next nondestructive testing center. The new West Penn Testing Georgia facility will utilize immersion ultrasonic, magnetic particle, etch, fluorescent and visible penetrant inspection to evaluate the quality and integrity of raw materials and components. Testing is anticipated to begin at the 30,000-square-foot Bryan County facility in the fourth quarter of 2014, and the company expects to employ roughly 70 ultrasonic technicians within five years. The company plans to work with the local communities, technical colleges and military bases to secure qualified candidates and will also qualify for Georgia QuickStart, one of the nation’s top workforce training programs.

 

  N. David Campbell, CEO, West Penn Testing Group, said  they selected the location based on Bryan County and the state’s ability to find ways to support local employment opportunities, technical education centers, potential veteran employment pool, building availability/location, Georgia’s QuickStart program and tax incentives to remain competitive.
