Caterpillar chooses Georgia for new plant

Posted By on Fri, Feb 17, 2012 at 10:56 AM

Caterpillar will build a plant expected to employ about 1,400 near Athens, 40/29 reports. Fort Smith had made a run at the plant, though only North Carolina is mentioned as a contender in the Atlanta paper's account.

Sounds like Caterpillar will be given several hundred acres of land and utility service will be installed. Other elements of the deal have not yet been revealed. The Georgia site is relatively close to Atlantic ports for overseas shipments.
