Another ribbon-cutting was held Tuesday, this one celebrating the $19 million Dixie Specialty Fibers campus in Trion. The company also signed on to the Georgia QuickStart program with Georgia Northwestern Technical College, according to the Chattooga County Chamber of Commerce.
In May 2018, then-Gov. Nathan Deal announced Dixie Color Inc., a color resin pellets manufacturing company, would bring 100 jobs with its planned campus in Trion operating as Dixie Specialty Fibers.
“The company specializes in single pigment dispersions, custom color masterbatches and plastic compounding. The Trion expansion will support the development of a new product line of polyethylene terephthalate microfiber for use in bath mats, area rugs and carpet,” according to an earlier media release.
Familiar name coming back to Broad Street? That’s the word on the street that we’re hearing. A vacant spot along Broad Street apparently is being prepped for a new restaurant and some of those behind the venture have strong ties to dining in our area. No word yet on what genre of food is on the way but we hope to know more later today.
