A local and state incentive package that included $1.5 million in state monies and $2 million in land, cash and tax breaks from the City of Waynesboro helped grease the skids for Polymer Group Inc., which chose Waynesboro over other locations including one near its corporate headquarters in the Charlotte, N.C., area for the installation of a new high-technology manufacturing line.

The $65 million project will add 41 jobs to the Waynesboro PGI plant.

“I appreciate the cooperative effort on the part of representatives of PGI, the Commonwealth and the City of Waynesboro to land this expansion. Our community is proud of its manufacturing heritage, and we believe that PGI will help us secure a healthy future in the manufacturing sector,” Mayor Tim Williams said today.

AugustaFreePress.com is working on a Special Report on the PGI news. The Special Report will be the top story in the AFPTheMagazine.com subscription edition on Monday, April 5.
