Local Business Experiences Job Boost From New Retailer Locating in Dodge County

In the next week, Eastman residents will see the beginnings of the building housing the newest retailer to locate in Dodge County, Tractor Supply Company, and local construction firm, Graham and Studstill could not be happier.

Mark Studstill of Graham & Studstill serves as site work subcontractor on the Tractor Supply Company project. Studstill shared his enthusiasm for the economic boost his company and Dodge County has received as a result of the new building project, stating, “It’s an opportunity that this community needs to recognize the benefits of. Not too many new buildings have been constructed in the past few years. This money is staying local and adding new jobs for my company and this community. All of my employees are Dodge County residents.”

Studstill, a member of the Chamber of Commerce and active on Forward Dodge, stated that Graham & Studstill has hired four new employees as a result of the Tractor Supply Company construction and expects the project will employ 25 of his skilled workers fulltime during the project’s duration, which has a building project completion date of August 1, 2013.

Tractor Supply Company can then begin the process of opening its doors for retail sales, creating a regional draw for surrounding counties’ citizens to shop in Eastman. “Dodge County will then experience another long term boost in employment and tax revenue. This is what economic development means,” stated Judy Hemphill Madden, President and Economic Developer, Eastman-Dodge County Chamber of Commerce “and what happens when a community works together and plans together.”

The Chamber thanks the City of Eastman and Dodge County for supporting and encouraging business growth which boosts Dodge County’s employment and tax revenue.
