Four Star Freightliner recently broke ground on a new facility in Valdosta, Ga.
Construction on the new building is tentatively scheduled to be completed in the spring of 2018. All sales and service operations will move from the current location at 1527 Madison Highway to the new location at 3550 White Water Road.
Four Star Freightliner is investing $3.5 million into the new building, which will be 25,000 sq.-ft. The company will retain its 18 employees from the current location and could add another 10-15 team members. Jerry Kocan, Four Star Freightliner dealer principal, recognized the employees and the people of Valdosta during the groundbreaking ceremony.
“We want to honor all of the hard work by the people who have helped us reach this point,” Kocan said. “We are making a major investment in Valdosta and the Lowndes County community and we intend to be here for many years to come.”
Just as construction is beginning on the new Valdosta facility, work on a new Four Star Freightliner in Midway, Fla., building is well underway. This facility is located at 1800 Brickyard Road East, just off I-10. It will replace the current facility on Capital Circle in Tallahassee.
This $4.5 million capital investment will retain 19 employees and allow for an additional 10-15 jobs at the Midway facility.
