1500 New Jobs Coming To Newton County



There was great news for Newton County today when Baxter Healthcare announced that they would open a manufacturing facility in Stanton Springs business park bring 1500 new jobs to the area and an additional 500 jobs spread throughout the U.S. Construction will begin on the facility later this year.

The company said it intends to invest over $1 billion dollars in the area as a part of the project over the next five years. What does this mean to Newton County and the Covington area? More retail shopping facilities, more restaurants, a greatly improved housing market, additional services and jobs due to other businesses drawn to the area, a higher median income for County residents, and over all, a greatly improved lifestyle and standard of living.

The community’s sincere thanks goes to the Newton County Chamber of Commerce and everyone who had a hand in bringing Baxter to the County, and to Baxter Healthcare for their interest and confidence in our hometown. Thanks Baxter! We look forward to having you here.
