Industrial Base

Industry is well represented in Quitman. If you ever purchased something to drink or received a gift in an attractive box, odds are it came from our City. Dart Container Corp (pictured) produces foam cups for many of the fast food restaurants here in the States and abroad.

Quitman represents a new Industrial beginning in shifting from a textile mill City to a broader-based manufacturing center. With over 450 square miles of renewable timber and oil & gas assets we are seeing tremendous opportunities in both white and torrified pellets.

Local industries include:

  • Dart Container Corporation of Quitman is a foam cup manufacturer whose products are seen in Fast Food Restaurants around the World. (
  • Quitman Tank Solutions is a manufacturer of storage tanks for the oil and gas industry. Three of the top oil-producing Counties join Clarke County, which is also a top oil and gas producing County.
  • Fleming Book Binding, is nationally known for binding periodicals, magazines, newspaper inserts, and books. (
