Industry is well represented in Quitman. If you ever purchased something to drink or received a gift in an attractive box, odds are it came from our City. Picture of Dart Container Corp, that produces foam cups for many of the fast food restaurants here in the States and abroad.
Quitman represents a new Industrial beginning in shifting from a textile mill City to a broader based manufacturing center. With over 450 square miles of renewable timber and oil & gas assets we are seeing tremendous opportunities in both white and torrified pellets. At the same time thanks to a $70 million dollar investment from a large European Chemical Company the door is open for the production of various chemicals from the cellulose in timber. Locations are available with rail, four lane access, and 1 gigabyte of internet speed.
