A firm that makes coloring agents for concrete and plastic will build a $115 million plant near Augusta Regional Airport, the Augusta Chronicle reports.
Rockwood Color Pigment and Services will employ between 80 and 100 people at the facility at Doug Barnard Parkway and Dixon Airline Road. The plant will take about 18 months to build.
After its completion, expected in the first half of 2013, Rockwood plans to close its St. Louis manufacturing facility and parts of its Beltsville, Md., operation.
The Rockwood plant will produce synthetic iron oxide pigments that are used to color products used in construction, coatings and plastics.
