Modern Dispersions, Inc acquires GRAD Site
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.
