LOS ANGELES, CA -- Caesarstone, a luxury quartz surface manufacturer, is opening its new manufacturing plant in Richmond Hill, GA, at a ceremony on May 27. This new state-of-the-art factory is the third production facility for Caesarstone, and the first site located in the U.S.
"We are thrilled to open our first factory in the United States," said Yos Shiran, CEO of Caesarstone. "With in the growing demand for our products over the last few years, particularly in North America, Caesarstone is ready to expand its production capacity. This is an important milestone for us and we look forward to working with the local community, to better serve our customers in the United States and offer products also made in the United States."
The Bryan County Belfast Commerce Centre in Richmond Hill was selected as the new Caesarstone plant location for numerous reasons, including the proximity to the Savannah port in the U.S. and the support that Caesarstone received from the state, the county and the city. This new manufacturing plant is expected to create approximately 200 new jobs in Bryan County.
"It's an honor to host Caesarstone's continued global growth and success. Georgia's outreach to the international business community and strong capabilities, including the fourth-largest and fastest-growing port in the United States, have attracted this very significant investment," said Georgia Governor Nathan Deal. "Caesarstone brings jobs and economic growth to the region, and we look forward to bringing to bear the logistics, workforce and other resources that will help it succeed."
In fall 2015, Caesarstone will unveil the new Experience Center that will be open to the public, next to its plant at Richmond Hill, designed by renowned interior designer Stephanie Goto from New York.
