Pratt Industries Opening New Facility In Georgia, Creating More Than 125 Jobs And Investing Over $120 Million

On Friday, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp announced that Pratt Industries, Inc., a Georgia-based recycled paper and packaging company, would be opening a new production facility in the portion of Warner Robins located in Peach County. The new facility is expected to create more than 125 jobs and invest more than $120 million.

“We’re proud of great Georgia-based companies like Pratt Industries and grateful for their continued growth here in the No. 1 state for business,” said Kemp. “Expansions like this account for more than 70 percent of last year’s economic development projects and are a testament to our business-friendly and partnership approach as we bring more opportunity for hardworking Georgians.”

Pratt Industries is based in Atlanta and is the fifth-largest corrugated packaging company in the United States.

“We’re very honored to be coming to Warner Robins and we’re committed to the great State of Georgia – in fact, Georgia is where our company began,” said Anthony Pratt, Global Executive Chairman for Pratt Industries. “This will bring Pratt’s total workforce in Georgia to over 2,100 employees and 11,700 nationwide.”

According to a press release from Kemp’s office, “The new factory will be the company’s 13th site in the state and will bring the company’s total investment in Georgia to over $800 million.”

“The new Pratt facility will be located at Robins Industrial Park, a Georgia Ready for Accelerated Development (GRAD) certified site, in the portion of Warner Robins within Peach County. The planned 496,000-square-foot facility will be one of the most modern of the company’s 72 factories spread across 25 states. It will produce corrugated boxes using 100 percent recycled containerboard, largely sourced from the company’s mill in Conyers, Georgia. Operations are expected to begin in late 2024,” the press release added.
