The company’s investment will create dozens of new roles in operations, logistics, warehousing, and supervision.

Paper and packaging products manufacturer Domtar is preparing to launch a $60 million project to expand its Engineered Absorbent Materials (EAM) manufacturing plant in Jesup, GA to support the firm’s airlaid nonwoven business, Georgia Gov. Brian P. Kemp announced in a release Tuesday.

“This project will play an integral role in helping Domtar establish a global absorbent materials and technology business that includes pulp and airlaid materials, strengthening our value proposition as an essential partner to absorbent hygiene customers around the globe,” said Kim Sumner, EAM Operations Director for Domtar, in a statement.

Domtar’s project will boost the site’s capabilities for airlaid nonwoven products for hygiene product manufacturers with the addition of a large scale production line.

The company’s investment is expected to create 75 new jobs in operations, warehousing, logistics, and supervision. Domtar’s Jesup plant has produced absorbent core solutions since 1998. Another expansion project was initiated at the facility in 2014.
