VALDOSTA, Georgia— CJB Industries is growing with more space for contract chemical manufacturing, packaging, and rail access. The company is expanding its Gil Harbin facility. The key additions to the expansion are two chemical process areas for custom manufacturing and rail service for the transportation of bulk chemicals.  The new addition brings the total facility to over 160,000 square feet under roof for rail, toll and contract manufacturing of both liquids and solid products as well as packaging.

According to Mike Murphy, Gil Harbin’s plant manager, “We are very excited about our 42,500 square foot addition.  The expansion has additional processing space available for new products and rail for railcar loading or unloading. The two process areas include high roof lines and containment for multi-tank processes. The rail area has around 90 feet of track indoors with over 18,000 gallons of containment.”

With the expansion and rail addition at Gil Harbin, CJB offers customers another transportation alternative. Clinton Beeland, CJB president and CEO, says, “By extending rail service capabilities and indoor rail car containment for two rail cars, we can now provide our customers the option to save money through rail service.  In addition, our rail line is serviced by two major railways, CSX and Norfolk Southern, creating huge advantages for our current and future customers.”
