Foam Insulation Specialist to Develop $22.5m Plant in Georgia

A manufacturer of HVAC duct liner insulation has announced that it is to establish a new plant at the former Rheem Manufacturing building in Milledgeville, Georgia.

Sparta Industries manufactures foam insulation for use in the commercial building industry. The venture, which is projected to create more than 1,000 jobs, represents a capital investment of $22.5m over the next 5 years.

“Georgia's pro-business climate, highly-skilled workforce and manufacturing infrastructure continue to attract innovative manufacturers like Sparta Industries," said Georgia Governor Nathan Deal. “This Milledgeville facility will bolster the company's growth and further demonstrate why Georgia is a top destination for job creators.”

Sparta Industries founder and board chairman Walter Sommerman has overseen the construction of 32 plants, 24 of which are located in the US. Each of the 32 plants has been profitable since inception.

“Sparta will use an exciting new technology to produce insulation in Milledgeville,” said Dr Kenneth Hall, vice president of research and development for Sparta Industries. “The product will be more efficient and less costly while eliminating health and environmental issues.”
