ATLANTA (AP/WAOK) – Gov. Nathan Deal says a firm that makes vehicle roofing systems will open a north Georgia plant that’s expected to create 300 jobs.
Deal said Inalfa Roof Systems will open a manufacturing facility in Cherokee County that represents a $17.1 million investment. The plant will be in the Cherokee 75 Corporate Park off Interstate 75, about 30 miles northwest of Atlanta.
