Titan Steel Door to Expand Operations, Invest $11 Million in Northeast Georgia


Titan Steel Door will invest $11 million in northeast Georgia to create a new manufacturing facility, according to a release from Governor Brian Kemp.

The new project will establish a 145,000 square feet building and create more than 90 Jobs in Hart County, based on projections released by Kemp’s office.

“Georgia’s highly skilled workforce is one of the key assets that not only attracts job creators from other states, but also leads employers already here to expand,” Kemp said Tuesday. “As Titan Steel Door continues to grow in the No. 1 state for business, I look forward to seeing the new opportunities they will bring to hardworking Georgians in Hart County.”

Currently, the company employs approximately 30 individuals in Lumpkin County. The expansion will allow the business to increase the production of detention doors, frames, and windows. Furthermore, the company will begin to make new products like detention walls and ceilings.

The new positions will employ welders and machine operators, among many other positions.

“Titan Steel Door is thrilled to be expanding our operations in Hartwell,” said Titan Steel Door President Dick Treadwell. “We’re proud to be a part of the Hartwell community and look forward to expanding not only our business, but also our presence in the local community.”

Leaders across the state celebrated the decision, detailing that production of the materials will begin as soon as the end of January.

“We’re proud to congratulate our partners at the Hart County Industrial Building Authority and Titan Steel Door on this northeast Georgia expansion,” added Georgia Department of Economic Development Commissioner Pat Wilson. “It’s gratifying when our existing industries reinvest in Georgia and our people, and it’s further testament that our state’s investments in developing a quality workforce are helping businesses here succeed.”
