An aluminum manufacturing facility in Georgia’s Jenkins County expects to add 100 new jobs as it expands existing operations over the next three years, according to a statement by Gov. Nathan Deal.

The Augusta Business Chronicle reported that Deal announced Wednesday that MI Metals in Millen will invest about $2 million to expand its fabrication and metal extrusion production facility by 120,000 square feet to better reach its Southeastern customers.

MI Metals, founded in 1947 in Oldsmar, Fla., makes products used in transportation, recreational vehicles, solar, building and construction, communication, medical science and power generation industries.

“After the approval of our air permit, we will be able to paint extrusions in the Georgia location, adding even more jobs to the local community,” MI Metals President Brook Massey said. “The plant in Millen is located within a four-hour drive to several of our existing customers and will be MI Metals fifth plant location with 100 million plus pounds of aluminum extrusion and finishing capacity.”
