First Quality Baby Products Invests $418 Million Into Macon Expansion

A paper products company that’s been in Macon since 2008 will invest $418 million to expand its local footprint, Gov. Brian Kemp announced Thursday.

First Quality Baby Products’ expansion will create 600 news jobs.

“We’re always thankful when job creators like First Quality choose to expand in Georgia,” Kemp said. “More than 70% of last year’s economic development projects were expansions of businesses already operating here.”

First Quality and its affiliates manufacture baby diapers; youth and training pants; adult incontinence products; paper towels; and toilet paper. The company announced plans in March to expand its baby diaper and training pants manufacturing capacity by 50%.

“This expansion is a testament to First Quality’s innovative products and continuing commitment to the baby diaper market,” said Allen Bedford, president of First Quality’s Absorbent Hygiene Division.

First Quality will be filling executive, administrative, supervisory, and production positions. Openings will be posted at as they become available.

The Georgia Department of Economic Development’s Global Commerce team worked on the project in partnership with the Macon-Bibb County Industrial Development Authority, Georgia Power, and the Technical College System of Georgia’s Quick Start program.
