BUSINESS & INDUSTRY
wage in the community, so it is incumbent upon us, as an organization, to continue to do what we can to help grow and promote this important industry sector. Thanks to the success of Central Educational Center, the new GA CATT apprenticeship program focusing on industrial mechanics and our efforts to promote manufacturing through National Manufacturing Day and the Coweta Industrial Fellowship for Teachers, Coweta County is a recognized leader in promoting the manufacturing sector.
In your opinion, what makes Coweta an ideal place for companies to expand and grow their businesses? Through our existing-industry-visitation program, we have learned that access to a skilled workforce, training and educational opportunities for current employees, and a business-friendly environment are what help our companies succeed and ultimately want to grow their business in Coweta County. The same factors that are important to a company looking to locate to the area - location, infrastructure, education, tax structure, and quality of life - are also important, and our existing companies have the benefit of already knowing that Coweta County excels in those areas. Knowing they will be able to find the additional workforce they need and have support from not only the Coweta County Development Authority, but from our local governments and the community in general, makes expanding and growing their business here an easy decision.
