Ball Corporation Coming to Floyd County

The  Rome News Tribune reported on Tuesday that the Ball Corporation has agreed to purchase approximately 109 acres at the intersection of Georgia Highways 53 and 140 for a mammoth regional distribution center.


The Rome-Floyd County Development Authority and Development Authority of Floyd County agreed to the deal which will lead to a 750,000 square foot warehouse and distribution center on the property.

Ball has a major beverage container plant and a brand new recyclable aluminum cup manufacturing plant less than five miles from that site.

The company will pay $35,000 per acre for the parcel, which will pay off the debt on both the 110 acre site and the remaining acreage surrounding the Lowe’s Regional Distribution Center on the opposite side of Georgia Highway 53.
