Global Resources International and its Advanced Product Solutions subsidiary today announced plans to add 100 workers at the APS manufacturing center in Dothan and to expand in nearby Columbia with 10 new jobs.

The hires will allow APS to enhance its focus on its medical product line. In Columbia, APS will invest more than $1.8 million, according to the Dothan Area Chamber of Commerce.

“These growth plans by Global Resources International and Advanced Product Solutions represent a significant development for the Wiregrass region,” said Greg Canfield, secretary of the Alabama Department of Commerce. “This expansion will enhance the domestic production of critically needed products for customers in Alabama and the nation, while also solidifying the GRI-APS presence in the Wiregrass.”

GRI, headquartered in Flowery Branch, Georgia, is a privately held manufacturing and supply company specializing in the design, manufacture, sterilization and distribution of products for the health care, industrial and animal care markets.
