Impulse Mfg. awarded contracts to supply parts to Georgia Caterpillar plant
Impulse Mfg., a Dawsonville, Ga.-based metal fabricator, has been awarded significant contracts to supply parts to a new Caterpillar Inc. production facility located in Athens, Ga. That facility, which is expected to employ 1,400 people, will manufacture mini hydraulic excavators and small track-type tractors.
Impulse is projecting employment at its Dawsonville plant to grow by more than 150 people over the next three years, with more than half that attributable to the Caterpillar facility. The fabricator plans to invest several million dollars in manufacturing equipment over the next 18 months.
