BARTOW COUNTY, Ga. — A cryo freezer manufacturing company will be opening a new facility in Bartow County, Gov. Brian Kemp's office announced on Wednesday.
The governor's office says the company, IC Biomedical, would be making a "multi-million dollar investment" to open the facility near Cartersville, bringing with it 80 jobs.
"IC Biomedical manufactures premium cryogenic equipment, including stainless steel and aluminum freezers, Dewars, shippers, and other custom equipment used for safe storage and transportation of medical products such as vaccines, therapies, and other biological specimens," a release said.
The governor's office said the company will set up shop in a 75,000 square-foot facility that was recently constructed on Cass-White Road outside Cartersville.
The company plans to hire for positions in manufacturing, engineering and technical development, and the governor's office said those interested in applying for a job could visit icbiomedical.com/careers for more information, though as of Wednesday morning the page brought up a 404 error.
Gov. Kemp said the company's decision to open the facility in Georgia "is a testament to our thriving biomedical community, highly skilled workforce, and our world-class logistics network."
“Georgia was the obvious choice for us – a highly trained workforce, transport links, and a state infrastructure committed to the life science sector that is able to support our business in a way no other location could offer," the company's CEO, Steve Shaw, said in a statement.
