Bradshaw Home to Create More than 230 Logistics Jobs In Georgia’s Effingham County

On Tuesday, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp announced that Bradshaw Home, a company that designs and markets kitchen and cleaning products, will build a new distribution center in Effingham County, which will create more than 230 new jobs.

“As the No. 1 state for business, Georgia’s robust infrastructure and workforce continue to attract industry leaders such as Bradshaw,” said Kemp. “Our focus on creating good jobs for hardworking Georgians continues to lead to opportunities such as the ones Bradshaw Home is creating in the Peach State.”

Bradshaw Home creates kitchen tools, gadgets, bakeware, cookware, food storage, and cleaning products marketed under brands including GoodCook®, Casabella®, and Evercare®, among others. 

“We are proud to welcome Bradshaw Home to Effingham County,” said Georgia Speaker of the House Jon Burns. “Georgia’s strong economy and business-friendly environment continue to make us the envy of the nation. I want to thank all the local public and private sector partners, particularly the Effingham County Industrial Development Authority, as well as our outstanding team at the Georgia Department of Economic Development for their work in making this announcement possible. Our General Assembly is proud to partner with Governor Brian Kemp in our on-going efforts to bring opportunity and prosperity to every community in Georgia.”

“More than 75% of Bradshaw’s customers are east of the Rocky Mountains, 55% are east of the Mississippi River,” said Bradshaw CEO Tony Hair. “By opening an East Coast location, we expand our distribution network to more effectively service customers while significantly reducing freight miles to transport our products – a win-win for both retailers and the environment.”

According to a press release from Kemp’s office, “Bradshaw Home’s new 1.2-million-square-foot facility, located at the Savannah Portside International Park near Meldrim, is projected to open in November. The facility will be hiring for various positions, including forklift operators for loading and unloading, material handlers for kitting, warehouse operation leads, and more.”
