NASHVILLE, Ga. (AP) -- A company that manufactures parts for boats is planning to create 100 jobs in south Georgia over the next two years.
Gov. Nathan Deal announced that Coyote MFG Co. is planning to invest $2.5 million into a manufacturing facility in Nashville, which is about 35 miles north of Valdosta.
Deal says the company is planning to open a 109,000 square-foot facility that will manufacture steel and aluminum boat trailers, arches, leaning posts and more.
Berrien County Development Authority Chairman Paul Hamilton says county officials are excited that the locally-owned company is building a new facility, and Deal says the company has already started hiring for available positions.
