“Companies like Valmiera Glass are a major reason why Georgia has been named the best state in the country in which to do business for six consecutive years,” said Senator Perdue. “Valmiera is the largest producer of glass fibre in the United States. Just one year after opening their facility in Laurens County, Valmiera has already hired over 450 people for brand new jobs and become a vibrant part of the community. By focusing on apprenticeship programs, technical school cooperation, and consistent training for employees, Valmiera is providing unique and specialized career opportunities here in Middle Georgia. Thanks to the employees at Valmiera for welcoming us to their production plant and for making Georgia a leader in this industry.”
