Modern Dispersions, Inc acquires GRAD Site

September 14, 2018 - 02:35:19 PM
MDI has acquired 156 acre Perry House Road Tract. The property deemed "shovel-ready" as part of the state of Georgia's GRAD certification was purchased from the Fitzgerald and Ben Hill County Development Authority. The site will accommodate the company's future growth. Site preparation began in the summer of 2018 with plans for new construction to begin shortly after site work has been completed.

The property acquired was formerly the home of Delphi Automotive.  Upon Delphi exiting the southeastern US in 2006, the Fitzgerald and Ben Hill County Development Authority acquired the site from Delphi in 2013.   In collaboration with the state of Georgia's Department of Economic Development, the Development Authority recieved GRAD certification on the site in 2017.  GRAD, short Georgia Ready for Accerlerated Development basically means the property is "shovel-ready".  The Perry House Road tract has the distinction of being the first Brownfield Site in the state to receive GRAD Certfication.  With site prepartion on-going, we look to see new construction on the property in 2019.
