Georgia Governor Brian Kemp Announces New Facility Will Bring 900 New Jobs, Invest $420 Million In Henry County

On Tuesday, Republican Georgia Governor Brian Kemp announced that a new manufacturing facility will be opening up in Henry Country, bringing 900 new jobs and investing more than $420 million. 

The new manufacturing facility will be opened by Renewal by Andersen, the full-service window replacement division of Andersen Corporation.

“We’re proud Renewal by Andersen is growing its footprint in Georgia and choosing to bring its first Southeast manufacturing facility to our state,” said Kemp. “Thanks to our robust infrastructure network, companies are able to reach 80 percent of the U.S. market within a two-day drive or two-hour flight from the Peach State. This manufacturing facility will be just the latest to benefit from this unique advantage of our No. 1 state for business. We’re also looking forward to the opportunities this project will bring to hardworking Georgians in Locust Grove and the surrounding area.”

According to a press release from Kemp’s office, “Andersen Corporation and its subsidiaries operate more than 20 manufacturing and distribution facilities in North America, with an industry-leading portfolio of window and door products serving customers across the new residential, light commercial, home improvement, and remodeling segments. The Renewal by Andersen division manufactures, sells, and installs an exclusive replacement window solution to customers across the United States.”

“The new Renewal by Andersen facility will be located at The Cubes at Locust Grove. It will be the company’s first manufacturing facility in Georgia, joining an Andersen Logistics distribution center located in Douglasville and an Andersen Windows and Doors office in Marietta. The facility will initially support Renewal by Andersen, the company’s start-to-finish window and door replacement division, with capacity to expand in future years to support additional Andersen-enterprise product lines. Construction on the facility will begin in 2023, with operations expected to begin in 2025,” the press release added.

“We are thrilled to be joining the Locust Grove community – expanding our operations, accelerating our growth, and adding to our team in Georgia,” said Chris Galvin, Andersen Corporation President and CEO. “With a strong labor force, favorable business environment, and accessible transportation; the State of Georgia, Henry County, and the City of Locust Grove in particular, is a great place to do business. We are confident in our choice to make this significant investment in the State of Georgia.”
