Albany, Ga. – The Albany-Dougherty Economic Development Commission today continued the 2016-2017 “#MadeInAlbanyGA” campaign featuring Adco Professional Products, a brand of parent company R.R. Street & Co. Inc. (Street).

In conjunction with its parent company, Adco is the North American leader in the manufacturing and marketing of dry cleaning process additives, stain removal agents and filtration products for the professional dry cleaning industry.

“Adco’s location in Albany is a testament to the benefits of doing business in Georgia, and specifically in Albany-Dougherty County,” said ADEDC President Justin Strickland. “By reducing the costs of doing business and offering strong support and advocacy to our industries, we are able to locate and secure internationally renowned industries such as Adco by making our community its most advantageous option in terms of the bottom line.”

Over 140 individual products ranging from dry cleaning solvents, to detergents, stain removal agents, laundry detergents and filtration products are produced, packaged and distributed at Albany’s Adco location.

In addition to the Albany production facility, Street has four locations in the Chicago area, where the company is headquartered.

“Rather than move operations to Chicago, when Street acquired Adco in 2014, the company was impressed by Albany and how it understands the needs of manufacturing businesses,” said Street President & CEO Marc Beard. “So much so, that Street is continuing to transition more distribution, production, research and technical support to Albany.”

Most recently, the company has invested in a state of the art technical training and research center at Albany’s Adco production facility, which will help bolster Adco’s position in the Street company network.

The #MadeInAlbanyGA campaign, which features an existing industry each month, is an expansion on the award-winning video of the same title, produced by the ADEDC in 2014. The expanded 2016-2017 campaign includes both print and digital components, which can be seen on the ADEDC’s Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages, and on its Web site, choosealbany.com.
