Environmentally-friendly construction product maker GreenTech Manufacturing
plans to locate a new facility in Douglas, Gerogia, which will create 320 jobs
and invest more than $20 million in a manufacturing and distribution facility.
“In Georgia, we work hard to support innovative companies such as GreenTech Manufacturing,” said Governor Sonny Perdue
. “As the world focuses on green technologies and cleaner manufacturing processes, GreenTech Manufacturing is a perfect fit for our state.”
GreenTech Manufacturing has contracted a 103,000-square-foot manufacturing and distribution center located on nine acres in Douglas’s Southwest Industrial Park. GreenTech is wholly owned by Gulf Coast Arms, a nonprofit trust incorporated in Texas, whose mission is to foster sustainability and affordability solutions across the country and abroad.
GreenTech uses the innovative Powder Impression Molding (PIM) system to produce stronger-than-steel, lightweight construction products using up to 95 percent recycled materials from single-stream solid waste sources. The result is an environmentally sustainable, efficient and cost-effective alternative to traditional construction products such as metal, wood, concrete and fiberglass.
To grow roots in the local community, GreenTech will offer high-quality and high-paying administrative, technical and operational jobs that include high-tech job training and significant employee benefits. The company is working with Quick Start, East Central Technical College
, the Georgia Department of Labor
and Georgia Tech’s FaciliTech Team to create and implement customized workforce training. Job search and placement is expected to begin immediately.
“This is a great day for Coffee County,” said JoAnne Lewis, executive director of the Douglas-Coffee County Chamber of Commerce
. “GreenTech will become one of the city’s highest employed businesses. The company’s official announcement helps us celebrate the 50th anniversary of economic development in Douglas. Businesses like GreenTech will help us carry on our tradition of economic success and progress.”

Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino
recently joined leaders from various community based organizations and hospital administrators for a ribbon cutting ceremony to officially open four new community classrooms in the Longwood Medical Area
. The Community Training Center, housed in newly developed medical research and office space owned by BioMed Realty Trust, represent first-of-a-kind arrangements in Boston. Under the leadership of Mayor Menino, this partnership will allow for community groups from Mission Hill, the Fenway, Jamaica Plain, and Roxbury to have direct access to the Longwood Medical Area campus in order to hold education and training classes. This training will allow many people searching for jobs in Boston
to prepare themselves for careers within the medical research and healthcare industry, one of city’s leading economic sectors.
“I’m proud that this innovative partnership will provide many more residents in the City of Boston with the educational and training opportunities needed for a career in the healthcare industry,” Mayor Menino said. “The space’s prime location in the Longwood Medical Area allows students from outside of the area to experience Boston’s healthcare industry, while also providing local institutions classroom space for employee training.”
The Healthcare Training Institute, which will operate out of the Community Training center, will engage all of the major health care employers in the area, 2 community colleges, and a collaborative of community-based organizations in providing over 500 employees and community residents per year with a continuum of services — workplace education, college transition, student support/coaching, pre-employment — and career advancement pathways leading to mid-skill occupations in allied health and nursing. The classrooms’ proximity to employers makes it much more feasible for students to be able to attend class after work.
