20 Dec, 2017
The Georgia Department of Economic Development (GDEcD) announced that Modutek International, manufacturer of modular buildings and power systems, will create 70 new jobs and invest more than $6 million in Treutlen County. This new manufacturing and distribution facility in Soperton will produce modular power systems for data centers and other technology companies.
“We look forward to watching an innovative company like Modutek International reach its goals through this expansion in Soperton,” said GDEcD Commissioner Pat Wilson. “This is an incredible win for Treutlen County, as these jobs represent an important step in increasing job growth in rural Georgia and new opportunities for the regions highly-skilled workforce. Congratulations to all partners involved.”
Modutek International’s new facility will manufacture and distribute plug and play modular power systems for both domestic and international installations. Modutek packaged systems are provided to prime mover manufacturers, data centers, retail facilities, health care facilities and energy producers.
“I am confident that our new headquarter location in Soperton, Georgia will serve our firm and the community well. Modutek International LLC is committed to provide opportunities for residents interested in the manufacturing field,” said Carl Trent, president of Modutek International. “This location was chosen in large part because of the available local talent pool. We look forward to building our Soperton team consisting of design engineers and production staff.”
Modutek International LLC will acquire and renovate a former textile building located on twelve acres in Treutlen County Industrial Park in Soperton. The selected facility has been vacant for more than five years. The new Georgia location will provide the necessary infrastructure for transporting products by truck, rail and ship.
“It has been our privilege to partner with Modutek International with its new headquarters in the Soperton-Treutlen Industrial Park,” said Executive Director of the Treutlen County Development Authority Chris Kight. “The Treutlen County Development Authority stands ready to assist Modutek International as it seeks to become an established industry in Treutlen County and abroad, and we look forward to the prosperity and opportunities that this new industry can bring to our local community and its citizens.”
