Irving Consumer Products coming to Macon-Bibb

On August 9, officials from Irving Consumer Products announced that the family-owned company would be investing $400 million in a production facility in Macon-Bibb County at the Sofkee Industrial Park. The Irving complex is expected to employ approximately 200 people, with a payroll of an estimated $11 million. The arrival of Irving Consumer Products to the economies of Macon-Bibb County and the state of Georgia was made possible by the partnership between the MWA, the Macon-Bibb County Industrial Authority, and others. Unlike any other water utility in the state, the MWA invests $704,000 annually into a fund for economic development purposes; more specifically, the Authority invests these dollars into land acquisition, installation of water and sewer infrastructure and more, in the development of industrial parks. Irving Consumer Products serves as an example of a significant return on that MWA investment.
