Applicant: Tift County Development Authority

EDGE funds for building construction to support the expansion of Heatcraft Refrigeration Products, LLC (HRP), a manufacturer of climate-control solutions for commercial and industrial applications. The Company plans to construct a 310,000 square-foot manufacturing facility adjacent to its existing facility in the Magnolia Industrial Park in Tifton. HRP, headquartered in Stone Mountain, is a subsidiary of Lennox International, a publicly traded company whose history dates from 1895 when Dave Lennox built and sold the industry’s first riveted-steel furnace which was more durable than the cast iron furnaces of the time. Units manufactured at the Tifton facility include evaporators, condensers and other refrigeration products representing five market leading brands: Bohn, Larkin, Climate Control, Chandler and Interlink. With 267 existing jobs and 325 new jobs, this expansion will make the Tifton plant the only refrigeration manufacturing facility in North America for Heatcraft Refrigeration Products.

Total Budgeted Project Cost: $25,492,600
