Elixir Extrusions Expands Douglas, Georgia, Manufacturing Plant
5 May 2017
Elixir Extrusions, a manufacturer of custom aluminum extrusions and fabricated parts, will expand its operations in Douglas, Georgia. This expansion will create 100 new jobs in Coffee County, and represents an investment of more than $8 million into the facility.
The new 70,000 square-foot facility will accommodate the integration of automated anodizing equipment. A subsequent production line will be installed, and will be one of the largest of its kind in the U.S. The company currently operates a 250,000-square-foot facility in Douglas-Coffee County which provides full-service, custom aluminum extrusions for a variety of applications.
“Our vision for continued success in value added capabilities is coming to fruition as we boldly take the next step to become a fully integrated aluminum extruder, fabricator, and finisher. This robust, state of the art anodizing expansion will open new doors for us as well as enhance service and relationships with our current and future customers,” said President of Elixir Solutions Philip Smith.
“We are extremely excited about our direction and I look forward to the next few months as our talented team makes this project a reality. Our future success is always dependent on state of the art technology, innovation, and talent; I am privileged to serve and lead such a team,” he added.
“This facility will be totally unique in its capacity and design,” said Donny Bradshaw, CFO of Elixir Extrusions. “We are very excited about the opportunity this provides for our core business, our vendors and our employees. An undertaking like this absolutely would not have been possible without the assistance of our representative, the Douglas Coffee County Chamber of Commerce, the Coffee County Economic Development Council, and City of Douglas. We sincerely thank them for their assistance.”
“Georgia continues to sustain a strong reputation for being a leader in manufacturing,” said GDEcD Commissioner Pat Wilson. “It is encouraging when existing companies like Elixir Extrusions announce expansions, as it puts a spotlight on our pro-business environment. Our variety of strategic assets, including a well-connected logistics infrastructure and established workforce will continue to serve Elixir Extrusions well.”
“Douglas-Coffee County is proud to be the home of Elixir Extrusions,” said Luke Morgan, Chairman of the Douglas-Coffee County Economic Development Authority. “The EDA has worked with this existing industry during several expansions and we are very excited to announce this most recent expansion that will have a tremendous economic impact on our community and region.”
