Caterpillar Created 364 Full-Time Jobs At Its New Plant, Report Filed By Oconee County Official States
That figure comes from a report Rick Waller, chairman of the Oconee County Industrial Development Authority, filed on Jan. 30 with the Georgia Department of Community Affairs OneGeorgia Authority.
The 364 full-time jobs created in the June 5 to Dec. 31, 2013, period is 264 more than Caterpillar was required to have during 2013–its first year of operation–by the memo of understanding it signed with the two counties in February of 2012.
By the end of 2032, according to that MOU, Caterpillar is to have created 1,100 full-time jobs, though the company used the 1,400 figure in its press release announcing its decision to locate its manufacturing plant in the two counties, and most media reports have used that higher figure.
