Majestic Oaks Is "Kia" for Meriwether County - by John Kuykendall - The Manchester Star Mercury
It has taken almost four years, a great deal of hard work and a lot of people working endless hours, but project Majestic Oaks that will bring 426 jobs to Meriwether County is now a reality. Code-names Project Magestic Oaks by the Meriwether County Development Authority (MCDA) and the County Commission, the industry will locate in Meriwether Park in morthwest Meriwether and is the county's version of Kia manufacturing located in West Point. "This is our Kia" said MCDA Chairman Robert "Bobby" Moreland. "It is also just the beginning of what is to come and will make Meriwether County viable for the next 100 years." Project Majestic Oaks will acquire 142 acres in Meriwether Park and will take all the tract of land from the north side of Dongwon Autopart Technolgoy all the way to the bridge that crosses Interstate 85. The manufacturing company plans to construct a 487,000 square foot facility originally, but plans to expand the facility by 200,000 square feet in the next few years and will have a warehouse on the site.
