Manufacturing in the
Locate South Georgia region
While South Georgia is renowned for its agricultural advantages, we’re also home to a hotbed of advanced manufacturing. Our large network of universities, educated talent pool, “shovel-ready” sites, and inventory of available facilities make our South Georgia communities great places to produce products of all types.
Products currently produced in South Georgia include bedding, glass, marine products, fabricated metals, plastics, chemicals, forest products and many other categories. Such production requires a workforce that is educated and eager to work. Our talent pipeline focuses on producing qualified and desirable candidates for our region's employers.
Another plus for our businesses is our location. Our transportation network ensures businesses can easily and quickly get products to market. Additionally, our climate is warm most of the year with little excessive rainfall (including no snow). Companies can operate year round. Weather delays are rare.
