METTER, Ga. (WTOC) - Hundreds of jobs are coming to Candler County.

Wednesday marked a huge groundbreaking for two companies in Metter.

WTOC was there when the two companies took their first steps forward.

Autoparts company DAS Corp and sustainability-focused agriculture company 4 Fungi’s Regenerative both broke ground.

DAS Corp will bring 30 jobs while the other company will bring 50.

“The DAS plant will probably be built middle of the year or towards the end of the summer next year, so they’re going really fast. The other one will be right behind it. As far as opening, they have three different phases they will be doing, so they’re going to be neighbors in the park and everybody will be opening about the same time,” said Hannah Mullins, the executive director of Candler County Industrial Authority.

The companies are bringing $35 million and $27 million investments respectively.
