NEWNAN, Ga.—Semperit A.G. Holding officials decided two years ago to invest almost $10 million to begin manufacturing products in the U.S. Doing so would expand the company's presence in both North and South America and fulfill its commitment to improving its proximity to customers in the process.
After a year of scouting potential sites, the company settled on leasing a facility in Newnan, one constructed to Semperit's specifications. The new factory is located just south of Atlanta.
Semperit since has relocated its North American headquarters, warehouse and distribution center operation from Stone Mountain, Ga., to the Newnan location.
Vienna, Austria-based Semperit opened the facility a few months ago, fulfilling the firm's long-term plan to expand its reach in the Americas.
