TIFTON-The Piedmont National Corporation and the Tift County Development Authority are excited to announce the start of construction on a new distribution facility in Tifton.

The Piedmont National team, working in partnership with Brian Marlowe, President and CEO of the Tift County Development Authority and the Tifton-Tift County Chamber of Commerce, and Jonathan Jones of Jones Construction, has developed a design which will allow for continued expansion and serve Piedmont National well into the future. Company officials expect to be operational in Tifton by early summer.

According to Jerry Milner, Piedmont National Executive Vice President, “Our Tifton location will allow us to continue serving our existing customers and expand Piedmont National’s ability to reach a larger geographic area with regularly scheduled delivery capabilities.”

“Great things continue to happen in Tifton and we are proud to welcome Piedmont National to our community as they expand their distribution capabilities, providing more efficient and effective services to their customers.” Marlowe said. “We will continue to work very closely with company officials to ensure a successful, long-term partnership.”
