Valmiera Glass Group, one of Europe’s leading glass fibre manufacturers, plans to expand its United States headquarters in Dublin, Ga., investing $90m and bringing around 425 new jobs to Central Georgia through 2022.

Valmiera Glass Group first announced its central Georgia factory in 2014, promising $20 million in investment and 125 jobs. Now, the company is committing to spend $90 million more over the next six years and hire 425 more people, which would make it the largest employer in Laurens County, according to the Georgia Department of Economic Development.

The company melts down and spins glass into fibres to be sold on spools or fashioned into heat- and water-resistant coated fabrics that can be used in a variety of applications in many industries like aerospace, automotive and construction.
