Georgia Governor Brian P. Kemp announced that Steves & Sons, Inc. will make a substantial, multi-million-dollar investment in a new, state-of-the-art molded door skin facility near Athens in Jackson County and will create 170 jobs over the next three years.

About the facility and the company

Steves & Sons new 310,000-square-foot facility will produce millions of molded door skins annually for interior doors used in new housing construction, and repair and remodeling. This new facility aims to substantially improve Steves & Sons' ability to serve its customers with a quality product nationwide more efficiently.
