Large manufacturing plant coming to Waycross, expected to bring 1,400 new jobs

WAYCROSS, Ga. — Gov. Brian Kemp announced Wednesday that ADMARES, which specializes in industrialized manufacturing of buildings and homes, plans to construct its first U.S. manufacturing facility in Waycross, Georgia.


The company expects to create over 1,400 new jobs and invest $750 million in Ware County.

“Projects like this prove that in every part of the state, Georgia has what job creators look for,” said Gov. Kemp. “We’re proud to welcome ADMARES to the No. 1 state for business and thankful for their decision to locate in a rural part of Georgia, as so many other companies have done in recent years. This project will not only bring more opportunities to hardworking Georgians, but it will also help innovate the home building industry at a time when we need more rural workforce housing.”
