To be considered for an award, they must also meet criteria in the following areas: corporate responsibility; economic impact on the state and workforce excellence.
Governor of the State of Georgia, Nathan Deal, noted the tremendous contribution manufacturing makes to the state’s economic well-being. Nearly 9,500 manufacturing facilities are located in Georgia, according to the proclamation, and they provide 349,138 jobs and generate more than $18 billion in wages in the state each year. Managing Partner, Sheldon G.
Hurst, Jr., responded to the nomination by saying, “It’s an honor and a privilege to be nominated for such a prestigious award. It also confirms our dedication to collaborative partnerships that we have forged with the Department of Economic Development and Wiregrass Technical College, to name a few. Both of which are outstanding resources to community businesses.”
