DOTHAN, Alabama — Global Resources International and its Advanced Products Solutions subsidiary announced plans today to add 100 workers at the APS medical manufacturing center in Dothan and to expand in the nearby community of Columbia with 10 new jobs.
The growth project come less than two years after GRI announced plans for the APS facility in Dothan, which produces personal protective equipment, engineered fabrics and injection-molded medical products. The $9.5 million investment was projected to create 70 jobs.
The Dothan Area Chamber of Commerce said the hiring wave at the Dothan facility will permit APS to enhance the focus on its medical product line, with a concentration on human and animal health markets.
In Columbia, APS will invest over $1.8 million in an operation that largely focuses on sterilizing medical products, according to the Chamber.
