A Georgia company is planning to invest $9.5 million to open a medical manufacturing center in Dothan, creating 70 jobs in the area, Gov. Kay Ivey announced Monday.
Global Resources International, a contract manufacturer, said a new medical manufacturing subsidiary — Advanced Product Solutions — would oversee the center manufacture engineered fabrics, personal protective equipment and injection molded medical products in the United States. The Dothan center would also expand those capabilities to include injection molding of non-medical products and the production of absorbent underpads for the human and animal health markets.
“We welcome the decision by Global Resources International to base its innovative new manufacturing center for PPE and other products in southeast Alabama,” Ivey said in a statement. “This is a great news for Dothan because it will create good jobs and provide a solid economic boost for the entire area.”
