“Batchelor & Kimball has purchased 20 acres in unincorporated Rockdale County to build their new manufacturing facility which will also be their corporate headquarters.

Brian Batchelor, Chief Operations Officer of BKI, explains that the decision to move to Rockdale County from their home of more than three decades was difficult, and only made after the management team completed a thorough search and review of all the options. Ultimately, the decision was unanimous that the Rockdale County property was the best fit for the company today and for the next 30 years.
