Six-hundred more jobs are coming to north Georgia. This time, Braselton was selected as the site for economic development.
On Wednesday, Gov. Nathan Deal and the CEO of Carter’s, Inc., announced the company will use a one-million-square-foot facility and open the center to support the company’s e-commerce, retail, and wholesale businesses in June.
The company expects to invest more than $50 million in the new facility and create more than 600 new full -time jobs in Georgia by 2015, according to a news release.
“Carter’s new distribution center will have an immediate, positive impact on the lives of Jackson County residents,” said Deal in a released statement. “Encouraging job growth in the state is of the utmost importance, and we are pleased Carter’s has chosen to invest in Georgia and its workforce.”
Georgia QuickStart, the state’s oldest and most successful job training program, will support Carter’s in developing a high performance workforce for the new facility. The company will begin its hiring process in early May to fill positions in operations, engineering, inventory control, human resources and additional support roles.
