Foreign Direct Investment


In Liberty County, 70% of the existing industry employment is tied to companies headquartered overseas, and our industries export products and materials to more than 70 countries worldwide.

Liberty's longest-standing industrial employer, Interstate Paper, is headquartered in Lebanon. Our largest industrial employer, French-owned SNF, opened its Riceboro plant in 1986 with 35 employees and now has more than 1,500 total employees and a satellite subsidiary in the process of expanding.

High-quality gift wrap manufacturer International Greetings is headquartered in the United Kingdom. German high-end clothing manufacturer Hugo Boss owns a distribution center out of the Midway Industrial Park, and German tea manufacturer Florapharm operates a distribution center in the Hinesville Technology Park. Korean tire company Hankook and third-party logistics provider Pactra International Co. Ltd. operate a co-branded, 10-state distribution center in Tradeport East Business Center.

The city of Hinesville also has a sister city relationship with Yichun, China and several existing industries export goods to Asia through nearby ports of Savannah and Jacksonville.  

Foreign Trade Zones


A significant portion of Tradeport East & West and part of the Midway Industrial Park have been designated as a Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ), which is a federally-approved area into which goods can be imported without the payment of U.S. Customs duties. FTZs have many advantages to companies to include:  simplified import and export procedures, lower customers brokerage fees, no duties on domestic sales until merchandise leaves the FTZ and potential reductions in duty rates on a manufacturer's final product.
