2017 Georgia Automotive Awards Nominations Now Open

Great news! We are now accepting nominations for the 2017 Georgia Automotive Awards.

Georgia is a leader in the automotive industry. In fact, the automotive industry contributes an impressive $2.3 billion to the state’s economy. Automotive suppliers and companies from across the globe continue to find a home in Georgia. From Porsche, to Sentury Tires, to voestalpine – automotive companies find success in our state.

To help bolster this industry – the Georgia Department of Economic Development created the Georgia Automotive Awards. These awards were created to elevate the industry’s profile, recognize individual companies for their contributions to the state and in their communities, and celebrate the industry’s collective accomplishments.

Last year’s inaugural Automotive Award winners include:

  • Novelis – Automotive Innovation Award
  • Toyo Tire – Automotive Supplier of the Year
  • Hitachi Automotive Systems – Community Impact Award
  • Kia Motors Manufacturing of Georgia – Georgia Automotive Company of the Year
  • Randy Jackson, Kia Motors Manufacturing Georgia – Georgia Automotive Leader of the Year

Think your company has what it takes? Click here! Anyone may nominate a company, and a company may also nominate itself for an award. Applications close on Aug. 11 and winners will be announced early fall.
