From the Chairman

The Deep Roots of Agriculture Help Wanted Wanted for immediate employment with the following skills needed:

Perry Barnett, CPA Rushton Chairman, Greater Hall Chamber of Commerce

• Ability to lead an organization that has been run for multiple generations. • Willingness to invest family’s life savings each year. • Acknowledge that business success may depend on the weather. • Agree to overtime, months at a time. • Have basic veterinary and first aid skills. • Experience with global futures markets and immigration laws. • Knowledge of engineering, metal fabrication, carpentry and plumbing. • Skills in new and changing technology with the ability to analyze large amounts of data. • Willingness to respond to emergencies, all hours, day and night. • Prepared to help others at any time. • Willingness to invest in the community and take leadership positions as opportunities arise.

Pay and Benefits • Salary – At year end, after all of the bills and loans are paid, applicant can have what is left. • PTO and Holidays – None. • Thanks and gratitude – Applicant should be prepared to rise early and work late to provide products vital for mankind, often with very little consideration by society as to how these products arrive in their local stores. For many of us this job description would be more than is needed for a CEO of a large company. For the women and men that work in Hall County’s agricultural industry, this job description is just the beginning.

December 5, 2017 • Greater Hall Chamber of Commerce

We are blessed to have a robust agriculture industry in Hall County. From an economic perspective, agriculture is responsible for over 17,000 jobs with farm sales directly to consumers of over $280 million. Also, with agricultural output of over $4 billion, Hall County ranks 16th in Georgia in agricultural products sold.

2

We are thankful for the strong economic role that agriculture plays in our community. However, the benefits that we all receive are much more than this. Farming, one of the oldest industries, creates humility and character. Farmers care deeply for their work and their community. There are few industries like agriculture that span multiple generations and have such a long history of supporting our schools, churches and community. Farmers are innovative and are the ultimate problem solvers. For people that choose to leave the farm for other careers, these skills do not go unnoticed and their resumes often receive extra consideration. It is well known in the business community that someone who has spent any amount of time on a family farm usually has integrity and a strong work ethic, traits that are in high demand. Also, for those studying agriculture and choosing it as a career, they deserve all the support that we can give them. As we stop during the Holidays to spend time with our family, if we are wearing clothes made with cotton, live in a house made of lumber, and have a nice meal on our table, let us remember to give an extra 'Thanks for Agriculture' in Hall County. Merry Christmas Everyone.

2017 Industry of the Year Awards The Greater Hall Chamber's 2017 Industry of the Year Awards were presented at the 9th Annual Industry Appreciation Luncheon on November 14 at the Chattahoochee Country Club. Sponsored by Lanier Technical College, the awards honor area existing industry leaders based on economic impact, workforce excellence and corporate responsibility. The Greater Hall Chamber continues to focus on the importance of existing industries in our community. In 2016-2017, 44 new and expanded businesses announced the creation of 1620 new jobs and $285 million in capital investment for Gainesville-Hall County.

Count On Tools, Inc. (Small Employer Category) With 35 employees, Count On Tools, Inc. provides global manufacturing solutions with expertise in small-arms components, consumable manufacturing, as well as non-woven and adhesion system technology. Curt and Renee Couch started the business in their garage in 1991 distributing PB Swiss precision hand tools. Last year, they invested $2 million in six (6) new CNC Swiss machines, added 5,000 square feet to their current facility in Gainesville and plan to add more technology next year. To maintain an efficient operation, they incorporate PPE access, reclaim oils, restrict water usage, and have converted all facility lighting to LED technology. Count On Tools is comprised of a family type structure with their 35 employees generously sharing profits during the Christmas Holidays. The company provides annual health screenings, an employee assistance program and liberties within the company that allows employees to advance at what performance level they invest. They regularly employ high school students and allow student and teacher groups to tour the facility. Count on Tools serves several sectors of commercial manufacturing creating an unrestricted growth trend for the company. cotinc.com (L-R): Kipper Tool Company's Elizabeth Garrish, Senior Operations Executive; Tommy Lee, Production Manager, Chris Hulsey, Senior Marketing Manager, and Tabitha Weaver, Marketing Supervisor. Kipper Tool Company won Industry of the Year in the Medium Employer Category, 51-200 employees.

Victory Processing LLC (Large Employer Category) Victory Processing LLC has grown from 28 employees in 2006 to its current 1,700 employees. Earlier this year, they increased production by 18% with a $1.4 million investment and the creation of 230 new jobs. In the past year they have expanded their building, added new equipment and jobs and they plan to do so again next year. To invest in the industry’s future, managers speak in classrooms upon request. Maintaining about 20% below the industry average on workers’ comp claims is, in a large part, due to the three-prong process for new hire safety orientation, which includes a custom video and a supervisor walk through. Victory is a significant contributor to Straight Street Ministries which was started by one of the owners, Truett McConnell University and several other local churches and ministries. Employees enjoy a company-sponsored soccer team and 5K participation, bonuses, and holiday and vacation pay. They also have funded employee assistance to help employees in need. Employee training and tuition reimbursement allows them to promote from within and they have had several success stories of employees advancing in the company. Giving back to employees and the community is a priority. victoryfoods.net

Shelley Davis, Chamber VP Existing Industry and Curt Couch, CEO, Count on Tools, Inc., 2017 Industry of Year, Small Employer Category, 1-50 employees.

Kipper Tool Company (Medium Employer Category) A Woman-Owned Small Business serving military, commercial, industrial and local consumers since 1992, Kipper Tool in Gainesville specializes in creating custom toolkits as well as individual tools and supplies sold directly to consumers in their retail location. In 2017, Kipper secured a new government contract, strengthening their presence in the military marketplace, increasing sales and adding new employees to the sales team. In addition to increased sales, Kipper invested in new equipment this year and plans to do it all again next year. The culture at Kipper lends itself to service, and they are currently contributing to the Boys and Girls Club, Sisu (formerly CCAF), and Northern Star, as well as their annual "Wounded Warriors In Action" golf tournament. In a unique fashion, they have a garden outdoors to reduce water usage by several hundred thousand gallons per year and contribute to employee health at the same time. The 65 employees enjoy super bowl parties, Thanksgiving potluck, and Christmas parties. They are offered health screenings and flu shots and participate in area 5K’s such as the Chamber Chase annually. Employing Work Based Learning High School students and college interns as well have been a Kipper standard for years. kippertool.com Shelley Davis, Vice President, Existing Industry, Greater Hall Chamber, and Phillip Jones, Vice President, Victory Processing. Victory was the recipient of the Industry of Year Award, Large Employer Category, 201+ employees. The Industry Appreciation Luncheon was presented by Lanier Technical College with a sold out crowd of over 300 guests attending the event.


Retirement

Industry Recognition Awards

but the April 15 deadline for IRA contributions isn’t. You have only so many years to prepare for retirement. That’s why contributing to your Individual Retirement Account (IRA) is so important. Fortunately, you still have time to maximize your 2015 IRA contribution before the April 15 deadline. By contributing now, your retirement savings can have more opportunity to grow. Even if you already have an IRA elsewhere, it’s easy to transfer it to an Edward Jones IRA and begin receiving the face-to-face guidance you deserve.

Greater Hall Chamber 2017 Industry Recognition Awards were presented at the Industry Appreciation Luncheon on November 14. (L-R): Brandon Grant, Vice President, Bitzer US (Corporate Citizenship); Lamar Hughes, President, Ceramic Tile Services (Safety & Environmental Stewardship); Jan Vintrlik, President, ALBAform (Workforce Excellence); Brandon Loftus, Head of ZF Gainesville (Workforce Development).
