HVAC duct liner insulation manufacturer Sparta Industries will establish a new plant at the former Rheem manufacturing plant in Milledgeville, GA. Texas-based Sparta plans to invest $22.5 in upgrading the plant at 138 Roberson Mill Rd. N.E.
Sparta Industries manufactures foam insulation for the commercial building industry, using a zero-emission process. The new plant is anticipated to create more than 1,000 jobs during the next five years.
Rheem Manufacturing shut down in 2009 to consolidate operations during the economic downturn. The building remained vacant until Sparta Industries agreed to purchase the property.
