Georgia Governor Sonny Perdue met with Pirelli Tire Executives on yesterday in Milan.  Pirelli has announced a $15 million expansion to their tire manufacturing plant in Floyd County.  Perdue said, "“Pirelli’s announcement is just the latest expansion of international companies here in Georgia.  Georgia has all the advantages that companies are looking for when considering investment in the American market, and our expectation is that we will continue to see new jobs and investment stream to our state.”

Currently around 250 people work at Pirelli Tire in Rome.
