FiberVisions, a Thai chemical company subsidiary to expand face mask fiber production in Georgia


Monday, November 30, 2020

A unit of a Thai chemical company will spend $48 million to expand production in Georgia, citing strong demand because of the coronavirus pandemic for synthetic fibers used in face masks and wipes.

FiberVisions, a unit of Indorama Ventures, will expand its factory east of Atlanta in Covington, the company announced Tuesday. It will create 21 additional jobs making polyolefin fiber, with a new fiber production line scheduled to be installed by June. The fibers are also used in diapers and other products.

The company currently employs about 350 people at locations in Covington, Athens and at a Duluth headquarters for FiberVisions. The Covington factory employed 230 people in 2019, according to city of Covington documents.

State officials did not immediately disclose how much in tax incentives and other aid that state and local governments would offer Indorama. Indorama will qualify for a Georgia state income tax credit that allows the company to deduct $3,000 per job from its income taxes for five years.

Other incentives could include cash given from the state to local governments to improve infrastructure, and property tax breaks given by local governments.
