Arglass Yamamura, LLC, a glass container manufacturing company, will create more than 150 jobs and invest $123 million to build its first U.S. glass container manufacturing plant in Valdosta-Lowndes County, GA.
Valdosta’s highly-skilled workforce, affordability, educational infrastructure, and close proximity to markets along the East Coast were determining factors in Arglass Yamamura’s location decision for its specialty manufacturing operations.
Georgia, specifically the Valdosta region, will allow us to run a very flexible, efficient, and cost-effective manufacturing operation, while remaining close to our customer base in the South and eastern parts of the United States,We wish to thank local and state officials who have been instrumental in the site selection process and look forward to working with local businesses as we become an active member of the Valdosta community
said José de Diego-Arozamena, CEO of Arglass Yamamura.
Arglass Yamamura is a joint venture partnership between Japan-based Nihon Yamamura Glass Co., Ltd. and Cambium Arglass, a privately-held investment company.
