ATLANTA, November 26, 2019 —Governor Brian P. Kemp today announced that Guidoni Group – one of the leading producers and exporters of ornamental stones in the world – will locate a manufacturing facility in McRae-Helena, creating 455 jobs and investing $96 million in the project.
“We are proud to welcome yet another leading international manufacturer as they set up shop in Georgia,” said Governor Kemp.
With access to Georgia’s world-class ports system, logistics infrastructure, and top-ranked workforce, I am confident that Guidoni will find success as they create great opportunities for hardworking Georgians in Telfair County. It is truly an exciting announcement, and I am grateful that Guidoni chose to invest in Georgia.”
Established in the city of São Domingos do Norte, state of Espírito Santo, Brazil more than three decades ago, Guidoni has pioneered an innovative method of extracting, cutting, and polishing natural stones. Seeking to expand its portfolio, in 2015 the group invested in two new businesses, one quartz-engineered stone manufacturing facility in Spain and another one in Brazil, the first in Latin America. Guidoni’s global footprint spans more than seventy countries on five continents, with customers around the globe. The company’s CEO, Rafael Dalmaso Guidoni, is directly overseeing the project in McRae-Helena.
“We are pleased to announce that operations at our Georgia facility are scheduled to begin in the third quarter of 2020,” said Mr. Guidoni.
Guidoni Group was built upon the great pillars of a prosperous business: commitment, perseverance, dedication, and passion. On behalf of our company, I would like to express what a great honor it is to start this new chapter of our history in the State of Georgia, which, thanks to all of the efforts of state and local officials, we can now call our new home. The hard work of all our team members in McRae-Helena will perpetuate the history of excellence reflected in our mission, vision and values.
