April 16--  Vidalia has a new industry thanks to Trane.

The Landsberg Company has opened its first operation in southeast Georgia in order to provide direct packaging support for the shipment of Trane products.

{mosimage}According to Regional Vice President Kevin Mills, "Our primary opportunity in Vidalia is related to Trane, a large national account for us.  That's a cornerstone of our business here, but that allows us to service hundreds of other new customers as well and that's a great opportunity for us."

The new packaging plant is located in the Montgomery County Industrial Park in west Vidalia and has potential for serving many different types of clients.

"We're a full provider of industrial packaging and janitorial supplies.  We have been serving the southeast from our Atlanta hub for 30 years and our faciity here will help us better serve the coastal Georgia market," Mills says.

And already the company is looking for more space.

"We've quickly consumed the 20,000 square feet here and we're actively looking for more space because of the demand," Mills says.

The company currently has 15 employees in Vidalia many of whom are supplied by the Toombs County Service Center.
