BioLab broke ground Thursday, July 25, 2019 on a new 275,000-square-foot warehouse distribution expansion in Conyers.
The new building is the seventh building for BioLab in Conyers. It is being developed in partnership with Cabot Properties and Republic Property Company. Construction will be handled by ARCO Design/Build.
BioLab has had operations in Conyers since 1973. They produce and store pool and spa water-treatment chemicals. Their new warehouse distribution facility is designed to meet their current and future growth needs.
BioLab President John Viner said, “This new distribution center will streamline our processes and expand our capacity, allowing us to provide improved service levels to our customers.
Incentives for the project were provided by the Rockdale County government and the Conyers Rockdale Economic Development Council. These included county property tax abatements for 10 years, based on a sliding scale. School taxes were not abated for the project.
“My favorite thing about this job is working with companies that have already chosen Rockdale County and are choosing us again,” said Marty Jones, executive director of the Conyers Rockdale Economic Development Council. “The additional investment in both a new building and adding to the workforce is truly a win for Rockdale County.”
BioLab has been a staple in Rockdale County for many years and the new project signals continued growth in the community”, said Rockdale Commission Chairman Oz Nesbitt Sr.
