SAVANNAH, Ga. â€” Great Dane Trailers on Wednesday broke ground on a major expansion of its corporate offices here.
The ceremony â€” to mark the start of construction on a research and development center, a road simulator for testing trailers and a customer-care facility â€” came one day after Great Dane officially opened its ninth trailer manufacturing facility in nearby Statesboro, Ga.
CEO Bill Crown told the crowd gathered outside the firmâ€™s existing office building here that the new facility will â€œallow us to map the future of our entire company.â€�
The project will include the renovation of Great Daneâ€™s existing corporate office building here, adjacent to the Port of Savannah, and will allow the company to consolidate a number of functions currently housed in separate buildings.
Employment is expected to grow to about 180, from the current 130, when construction is completed next year.
