Union City, Calif.-based Orcon Corp. — a manufacturer of seaming tape for aerospace and carpet
applications — is opening a plant in Douglas, Ga., that primarily will manufacture carpet seaming
tape. Operations will be established in an existing 45,000-square-foot warehouse in Coffee County,
with production expected to begin by March. Orcon reports the expansion will create at least 50
direct jobs within the plant’s first 12 months of operation. The company expects to start hiring by
the end of February.
