WHY SOUTHEAST GA

I-95 runs north and south through middle of the Region and I-10 and I-16 are a short drive to the south and north. Business can easily reach the entire southeast United States in a one-day drive.

STRATEGIC ADVANTAGES


Our cost to do business is competitive, our communities offer business friendly service before and after the location, and the quality of life attracts management to lead corporate enterprises. We continue to work with industry leaders to develop streamlined training programs including dual enrollment for high school and technical college to provide the growing needs of our companies. And, because we are located in between two major employment centers, we have an untapped labor draw which allows companies to hire many people now driving out of town to work.
