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, Riceboro Paper Mill, is owned by DS Smith Paper, a British-based international packaging business with mills, sales offices and logistics depots across Europe and the United States. The local mill was founded in 1966 by Interstate Paper, 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. It expanded its equipment and engineering division, SNF Floquip, into a facility in the Midway Industrial Park and has subsequently doubled the size of the facility.

High-quality gift wrap manufacturer IG Design Group, headquartered in the United Kingdom, has a plant and German high-end clothing manufacturer Hugo Boss has a distribution center, both in the Midway Industrial Park.
 
German tea manufacturer Florapharm operates a distribution center in the Hinesville Technology Park. And 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.

Foreign Trade Zones

Portions of Tradeport East & West and the Midway Industrial Park have been designated as a Foreign Trade Zones, which are federally-approved areas 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.
