During its meeting on Monday, June 25, the Thomaston-Upson County Industrial Development Authority approved an incentive package to be sent to an international prospect.
Chairman Jim Edwards said the talks are in the very early stages and Thomaston is competing against two other states and counties in Georgia.
The international company could bring a $15 million investment and 115 jobs within the first year to Thomaston and Upson County, if talks go well.
IDA members said they believe the package is aggressive and hope to hear something back soon.
During the meeting, IDA member Johnny Brodnax asked what made them look at Thomaston. County Manager Bob Zellner said they approached Thomaston because of the labor force.
