Los Angeles, CA – Caesarstone opened its new manufacturing plant in Richmond Hill, GA at a ceremony on May 27, 2015. This new state-of-the-art factory is the third production facility for Caesarstone, and the first site located in the United States.
Caesarstone executives including Global CEO Yos Shiran spoke at the event, as well as city officials including Richmond Hill Mayor Harold Fowler, Congressman Earl “Buddy” Carter, Bryan County Chairman Jimmy Burnsed, and Georgia Department of Economic Development Commissioner Chris Carr.
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 United States and the support that Caesarstone received from the state, the county and the city. This new manufacturing plant created approximately 200 new jobs in Bryan County.
With the growing demand for Caesarstone products over the last few years, particularly in North America, Caesarstone was ready to expand its production capacity.
