Testimonials from Georgia Business Leaders
Following are just a few samples of what executives and third-party experts say about how Georgia helps businesses grow.
GM of Mobile Commerce & Point of Sale
|“Moving to Georgia was about our being closer to the customer. Eighty percent of our point-of-sale technology currently ships to the Northeastern, Mid-Atlantic, Southern and Midwestern regions. This move will enable us to respond faster to the market and better serve our customer base.”|
CEO, MAGE SOLAR
|“We are certain that we have found the perfect home for our company based on the excellent infrastructure; impressive workforce known for its productivity, integrity and skill; and a keenly business oriented leadership, who during the whole process also never lost focus of what is best for the future of Georgia, Laurens County and the City of Dublin.”|
President & CEO, Dayton Superior Corporation
|“So much of what we want to accomplish is dependent on finding the right combination of location, workforce, training and business climate. We believe we’ve made the right investment — one that will benefit both our industry and the region.”|
|Luis M. Martinez
CEO, Sepmag Technologies
|“When our board decided to open the U.S. subsidiary, we first considered markets along the East Coast as primary locations. After meeting the Georgia Department of Economic Development staff last April, we were encouraged by the strong Georgia nanotechnology and biotech cluster. Coupled with the Hartsfield-Jackson airport, the result was to choose Atlanta as our North American base.”|
President & CEO, Animal Health & Sciences, Inc.
|“The opportunities afforded by the strategic location of the Thomaston area contributed highly to this site selection. The unprecedented collaboration of the teams led by the state in conjunction with Mayor [Hays] Arnold’s office and the Thomaston-Upson County Development Authority were paramount in bringing this facility to Thomaston, Georgia.”|
President & CEO, De Wafelbakkers
|“Having the State of Georgia’s and Henry County’s support on this project was an important part of our decision to locate this facility in McDonough. In addition to Georgia’s progressive business climate, the availability of an existing McDonough facility already outfitted for food processing served as a logistical advantage among competing sites for our expansion in the Southeast.”|
