FAE USA, the U.S. subsidiary of the Italian company FAE Group S.p.A., is to begin groundbreaking at a 7.8-acre site in Hall County on July 10 for a new 35,000-square-foot building that will house the company’s headquarters and production and distribution operations.

The company, which manufactures mulching, grinding, stone crushing and soil-stabilizing equipment for the construction industry, is currently headquartered in Grayson.

The new facility is to be located in Oakwood South Industrial Park at the intersection of McEver Road and Rafe Banks Drive in south Hall County.

“We searched for a location that would allow us to be an efficient U.S. headquarters and sales operation and also provide a highly productive and quality manufacturing environment,” said Giorgio Carera, FAE USA’s chief executive officer in a news release from the Greater Hall County Chamber of Commerce.

He also referred to the success of other international subsidiaries located in Hall County including the Japanese manufacturer of lawn and garden tractors, front-end loaders and backhoes, Kubota Manufacturing of America Inc., and the Italian manufacturer of fabrics used in diapers, airline pillow cases and surgical gowns, Atex Inc.

According to the news release, FAE USA is to invest $3 million to $5 million in the business relocation and is to hire four new employees to assist with the company’s growth. The ten management employees currently working in Grayson will transfer to the new facility when it is completed.

Tim Evans, vice president of economic development at the chamber, told GlobalAtlanta that availability of land and pricing considerations were also among the reasons FAE USA decided to move its headquarters to Hall County.
