Brazilian agribusiness Forquímica plans to invest $1 million to convert a facility in Moultrie, GA into a manufacturing plant for sustainable crop protection products, Georgia Governor Nathan Deal announced in a recent press release.
“After four years working alongside farmers in South Georgia, Forquímica is very excited to join and to be a part of the Moultrie community as we start our crop nutrition manufacturing plant,” Reginaldo Zandonade, manager of the Moultrie plant, said in a statement. “We look forward to growing together for many years to come.”
The firm purchased the 51,000-sq-ft facility in Moultrie in December for $600,000, the Moultrie Observer reported. Forquímica plans to carry out production, management, and sales activities at the site.
About 80 jobs are expected to be created as a result of the project.
Established in Brazil in 1985, Forquímica provides a wide range of sustainable crop solutions, including soil care, seed care, and biologic pest and disease control products.
