POSTED: October 17, 2013 9:04 p.m.

Gov. Nathan Deal has announced that Shrivallabh Pittie Group, a leading textile manufacturer in India, will build its first U.S.-based manufacturing facility near Sylvania, creating 250 jobs and investing $70 million.

“The decision by Shrivallabh Pittie Group to locate its new facility in Georgia is an example of how our state is quickly becoming the No.1 state for companies to do business,” Deal said. “The company’s decision to build its first U.S. facility in Georgia underscores our attractive infrastructure and diverse talent pool.”

The facility will be located at the Screven County Industrial Park near Sylvania. The plant will manufacture a range of different counts of carded cotton yarn and production will be flexible in order to meet market demand. It will use class-leading machinery and benefit from economies of scale as the entire capacity will be based at one location.

The company will utilize synergies between the new plant and its existing textile operations, including technical expertise and a global sales and marketing network.

The Screven County Industry Park is a GRAD-certified site, one of more than 30 around the state that offers advanced due diligence for industrial development through the Georgia Allies’ Georgia Ready for Accelerated Development program. Shrivallabh Pittie Group will also take advantage of the of Georgia Quick Start, a state program that will provide the company with free, customized workforce training and development.

Founded in 1898, Shrivallabh Pittie Group operates 13 locations.

“We are very excited about this project, which is the biggest single investment in U.S. cotton yarn sector in decades,” said the chairman of Shrivallabh Pittie Group, Vinod Pittie. “We believe there is a significant market opportunity for yarn manufacturing in Georgia due to a skilled local workforce, proximity to high-quality cotton fiber, the economical supply and reliability of power and world-class infrastructure to international markets.”
