KINGSLAND, Ga. - A new $3.5 million manufacturing plant is being planned for Kingsland.

The Brunswick News reports Summer Industries is behind the project. The manufacturer of various items including paperboard tubes and composite cans also has plants in Yulee, Fla., Mississippi, New York and North Carolina.

Steve Summer is CEO of Summer Industries and told the newspaper that city officials along with the Kingsland Development Authority "did an outstanding job putting together an incentive package that was tailored to suit our needs."

Mayor Ken Smith said he was pleased with the announcement and expects Summer Industries will be community partners as the city continues to market and promote itself.
The plant is being planned near Interstate 95. Darren Harper with the development authority says no timeline has been set for construction to begin.
