TUCKER, Ga. — Prudential Overall Supply, a provider of reusable image work apparel and cleanroom laundry service systems, held a press conference at its future industrial and cleanroom laundry processing facility site here on Nov. 16 to celebrate the coming modern, new facility.
Local, state and congressional representatives attended the event.
The site will provide industrial and cleanroom laundry processing services. For industrial, industries like manufacturing, business services, restaurants and distribution companies with products like uniforms, floor mats, towels and napkins will be served.
For cleanroom, the facility will process for industries that operate and manufacture in controlled environments like semiconductor, pharmaceutical, bioscience, aerospace, education and electronics.
“Prudential Overall Supply’s investment in their modern, new Georgia facility, will provide quality jobs for Georgians and their families while contributing to the City of Tucker,” says Georgia Department of Economic Development Deputy Commissioner of Global Commerce Kristi Brigman.
“We extend our thanks and look forward to continuing to further strengthen the state’s relationship with the company for years to come. We’re also proud to congratulate DeKalb County and the City of Tucker for creating this opportunity and thank them for their partnership.”
Mayor Frank Aumen says, “The City of Tucker is thrilled that Prudential is expanding their space and providing even more jobs with the city. We pride ourselves on having a diverse base of jobs here in Tucker, ranging from heavy industrial to high tech to service and retail.
“Prudential Overall Supply has been a great business partner through the years, and we look forward to continuing and growing with them.”
“I am proud to welcome Prudential Overall Supply to Tucker,” comments Commissioner Lorraine Cochran-Johnson. “Their presence brings both job opportunities and tax dollars to DeKalb. Our business community is integral to the future of DeKalb, and I am here to see all businesses in DeKalb succeed.”
Chris Welch, Prudential’s president, says, “This facility will eventually provide over 100 well-paying jobs for the greater Tucker-DeKalb County community and provide our customers with best-in-class industrial and cleanroom laundry services throughout the region.”
The project is a 61,000-square-foot commercial laundry facility on a 4.57-acre tract. Prudential has purchased the building and will begin the construction project with a completion date scheduled for Q1 2024.
“The Georgia market is important to Prudential, so we can best serve our customers’ expansion requirements in the region,” Welch points out.
“We look to serve these requirements for existing and new customers. To signal our commitment to Georgia, our projected investment for this site is $35 million.”
This will be Prudential’s 36th location and its ninth ISO Class 3 cleanroom laundry processing facility in the United States.
The company says its Tucker plant will be the industry’s newest, most modern and among the largest industrial and cleanroom laundry processing plants in the United States.
