The Georgia Department of Economic Development (GDEcD) announced today that Advanced Digital Cable will locate a new facility in Blairsville, Ga., creating 60 jobs and investing $4.2 million.
“ADC’s focus on growing through technology will benefit enormously from the skilled workforce in and around Union County, ” said GDEcD Commissioner Chris Cummiskey. “This region has equipped itself well to retain and attract advanced manufacturing enterprises, so it’s great to see those efforts paying off.”
Advanced Digital Cable (ADC) manufactures a broad range of communications and industrial cables. The company has achieved steady growth and has consistently increased its manufacturing capability since it was founded in 1997 in Hayesville, N.C. ADC is constantly adding new products to its offerings to meet the changing needs of the industrial, commercial and communications markets. ADC is an ISO 9001:2008 registered company and all the company’s products are manufactured in the United States. The expansion to Blairsville represents an investment in its future growth.
“Advanced Digital Cable is excited about the opportunity to expand its operations to Union County, ” said Advanced Digital Cable President Steve Payne. “We greatly appreciate the help we have received from the Union County Development Authority in our search for a new location.”
ADC is purchasing an existing building in Blairsville Airport Regional Industrial park where it will begin later this fall to manufacture larger cables for instrumentation and control, QPL cables, PV cables for solar arrays, and flat cabling for pumping and irrigation. Georgia Quick Start, the state’s top-ranked provider of customized workforce training, will help the company begin operations the day it opens.
“We are very pleased to welcome Advanced Digital Cable to our family of industries in Union County, ” said Scott Carter, Chairman of the Union County Development Authority. We appreciate ADC’s investment in our community and the quality jobs they will provide for our excellent workforce.”
“We’re thankful that ADC has chosen Union County as its new home. We’re committed to creating the best environment for businesses to grow and prosper and look forward to ADC’s continued success in our community, ” said Lamar Paris, Sole Commissioner of Union County.
In addition to the Union County Development Authority, partners in the project included TVA and Blue Ridge Mountain EMC. Suzanne Browne, GDEcD Project Manager for Region 2, handled project arrangements on behalf of the state.
