Dodge County leaders meet state project managers | Business
It’s all about jobs. What makes Dodge County desirable to potential new industries or for the expansion of current industries? A group of Dodge County’s leaders recently traveled to Atlanta to meet with state project leaders to discuss what makes the county unique.
At the Georgia Resource Center, leaders from groups and organizations from all across the county met with Jim Lovett from Georgia Power and discussed how potential clients find the perfect area in the state to open their business. The group learned that Dodge County has many desirable traits such as the local airport, close proximity to major interstates, readily available utilities and gas lines and much more.
Judy H. Madden, Chamber president, gave a presentation to state project leaders that reminded them why Dodge County is the ideal place for potential investors and clients. She spoke about the school system, local healthcare and government, industries, available buildings and land for use.
Madden also gave the group an update on the growing aerospace industry in Dodge. Aremac Heat Treating, LLC, has officially broke ground near the Heart of Georgia Regional Airport. This adds a vital part to the “cluster” that consists of Dynamic Paint Solutions, Heart of Georgia Metal Crafters and now Aremac.
Dodge’s leaders were able to stand together and make a strong presence before the state’s project managers, which made the trip to the Georgia Resource Center a huge success.
