The Peachtree City headquarters of a Japanese appliance maker will create 150 jobs in a $69 million plant slated for Griffin.

The company’s first U.S. manufacturing plant could result in as many as 300 jobs over the next 10 years, according to Gov. Nathan Deal.

Rinnai, a subsidiary of Rinnai Corporation, is headquartered in Peachtree City. Based in Nagoya, Japan, Rinnai Corporation has a network of 20 branches and 86 sales offices in 13 countries across the globe.

“Georgia’s economic prosperity is a result of strong partnerships and collaboration with industry leaders from around the world,” said Deal. “Georgia is the gateway to the Southeastern market and beyond, and I am confident our skilled workforce and extensive manufacturing capabilities will support Rinnai in future growth.”

The state organized a trade mission to Japan to establish new economic partnerships, reinforce existing ties and promote Georgia as the top destination for business.

"We are excited to bring manufacturing and jobs to Griffin, Georgia," said Frank Windsor, chief operating officer of Rinnai America Corporation. "Our corporate philosophy is ‘quality is our destiny’. Rinnai will maintain strict manufacturing guidelines and quality control operations at our new U.S. manufacturing facility.”

The new facility will support the manufacturing of tankless water heaters, Rinnai’s top selling U.S. product. New jobs created will include positions in manufacturing.
