This will mark the company’s first distribution center on the East Coast of the U.S. and create 120 jobs in McDonough.

For more than 40 years, Feit Electric has been a leading lighting and smart home brand that sells to major retailers including Georgia-based The Home Depot, and Lowe’s, Ace Hardware, Costco, and Menards.

An early pioneer in energy-efficient lighting, Feit Electric was one of the first to bring compact fluorescent lamps (CFL) and LED technologies to market. With customers all over the world, the company plans to utilize Georgia’s extensive port system and ship 5,000 TEUs through the Port of Savannah annually.

Feit Electric has purchased an existing 268,940-square-foot facility, located at 255 Declaration Drive in McDonough. The company will bring 120 jobs to Henry County, including positions in material handling, management, and administration.
