Summer Industries, a manufacturer of paperboard tubes, cores, and composite cans, has chosen a site in Kingsland, GA, USA as the new home for their plant relocation currently based in Northeast Florida. Summer Industries, with headquarters in North Carolina, also has plants in Mississippi, New York, and North Carolina.
Summer Industries, an independent manufacturer of spiral wound tubes, cores, and canisters made from 100% recycled paperboard, serves a variety of industries in the Eastern United States, including manufacturers and converters of paper (containerboard, cellulose pulp, tissue, and graphic media), films, textiles, pressure sensitive tapes and labels, as well as shipping and mailing tubes. The plant serving Georgia and Florida currently employs 31 people.
“The City of Kingsland and the Kingsland Development Authority did an outstanding job putting together an incentive package that was tailored to suit our needs,” says Steve Summer, CEO of Summer Industries. “They made our decision to come to Kingsland and Camden County an easy one. We anticipate spending over $3.5MM in site development and construction to get this plant fully operational.”
“Summer Industries is a welcomed addition to our business community here in Kingsland. I know they will not only be a good fit for our community but great community partners and corporate citizens of Kingsland and Camden County”, says Mayor Kenneth Smith. City Departments, the KDA, and our community economic development partners were valuable resources in securing this growing company and I appreciate all their dedication, patience, and teamwork.”
