TriStar Aerial Lift and Equipment Sales, Inc., an authorized equipment dealer to various manufacturers announces its location in Downtown Dublin, Georgia. The family owned business with over 33 years of experience in the equipment industry will create over 30 jobs over 5 years in the community and will invest $1 million in its launch of new divisions at their Dublin facility that will include signage, equipment servicing, refurbish/reconditioning equipment, painting booth, and a rental center.

TriStar Aerial will be locating in a former agri-business building in Downtown Dublin. Dublin City Council approved the rezoning of the 1.839 acres from B-1 (central business district) to M-1 (warehousing and light industry) zone in order to allow TriStar’s expansion in Dublin.
“I want to be a part of Dublin!” said TriStar Aerial President Tim Sexton. “TriStar Aerial Lift and Equipment Sales, Inc. is elated to join the Dublin family. We thank the Dublin town officials and are grateful for their support, hard work and dedication. The spirit of the community is encouraging and we look forward to opening for business soon.”

“We are very excited to have TriStar in our community, and we are looking forward to their growth in Downtown Dublin! We know they will be a great corporate citizen,” said Brad Lofton, President of the Dublin-Laurens County Development Authority.

Currently, 90% of the company’s business is done outside of the state of Georgia, but their location in Dublin will allow them to increase their services and business within the state.

“Our team at the Georgia Department of Economic Development is excited about TriStar Aerial’s expansion,” said Georgia Department of Economic Development Commissioner Chris Carr. “We have great economic development partners in the Dublin-Laurens County area, and we believe TriStar Aerial’s expansion will simply add to a growing and highly successful business-friendly community.”

Georgia Department of Economic Development (GDEcD) Assistant Director of Entrepreneur & Small Business Development and Project Manager Ryan Waldrep assisted the company on behalf of Georgia in partnership with the Dublin-Laurens County Development Authority.
