According to an announcement made by the Georgia Department of Economic Development (GDEcD), wood pellet suppliers Fram Renewable Fuels plan on investing $15 million in a production facility in Brantley County.
The plant is to be operated by a division of Fram Fuels, Archer Forest Products, and the move is expected to create around 35 new jobs.
Harold L. Arnold, president of Fram Fuels said in a statement that, “Archer Forest Products LLC will be supplying wood pellets to help Farm Renewable Fuels to meet increasing demand. We would like to thank the Development Authority, County Commissioner, the City of Nahunta, and the Tax Assessor for helping us through the process of acquiring Archer Forest Products LLC.
Arnold also added that the company looks “forward to working with the community.”
The Brantley County location was chosen by Fram Fuels due to its strategic location.
