BUSINESS & INDUSTRY
What is the primary goal of the authority?
Greg Wright President of The Coweta County Development Authority
Our goal is to help facilitate quality job growth in Coweta County through the location of new companies and through the expansion of our existing industries. While it is certainly important to recruit new companies to the area, we place just as much of an emphasis on serving the needs of our existing industries. Communities see more job growth from their existing companies than they do from new companies locating in the area, so it just makes sense that established companies should be one of our primary focuses.
What kind of industries are making Coweta their home? From manufacturers, processors and assembly operations to warehousing and distribution facilities, we are fortunate as a community to have a very diverse industrial base. That means a downturn in one industry sector will not adversely impact our entire community. Personally, I am pleased to see the continued growth in manufacturing in Coweta County. Manufacturing jobs pay at a wage level higher than the average
