COLUMBIA, Ala (WDHN) — The Dothan Area Chamber of Commerce announced that, through an investment upwards of a million dollars, Advanced Product Solutions (GRI-APS) will create jobs to help produce procedure kits for operating rooms in their new facility.

According to the DACC, the investments total $1.6 million and will create approximately 30 new jobs in Houston County.

Advanced Product Solutions plans to use this investment to facilitate a new project in the 40,750-square-foot Russell Corporation Building, located at 101 Industrial Boulevard, which will be used to manufacture operating room procedure kits for both animals and humans.

These new growth plans by Global Resources International and Advanced Product Solutions in Columbia reflect the confidence their leadership has in the Wiregrass region, coming just months after they announced an expansion there. The job creation stemming from this project will deliver a major economic impact for the small Houston County town, and that’s always good news

The DACC says Advanced Product Solutions will begin the hiring process for the 30 jobs in the fourth quarter of 2023, and they hope to have the facility operational by the first quarter of 2024.
