Ongoing Initiatives

Your time is valuable, and we respect your priorities. The ongoing initiatives were created based on our existing businesses feedback on what they need today, and for the future growth of their company.

  • Manufacturers Roundtable – Once per quarter, the area’s industry leaders get together for lunch to discuss relevant topics or hear a speaker.  This is primarily an opportunity for the industrial community to get together on a regular basis and network.  The event is open only to industry leaders, their reps, and resource partners.

  • Student Industry Tours – This is an easy opportunity for companies to engage with the community and to help develop the local workforce by showing students what modern manufacturing looks like.  For interested companies, we can arrange tours with the Golden Isles Career AcademyCollege of Coastal GeorgiaCoastal Pines Technical College, or local schools.

  • Industry Appreciation Tours – Interested companies have the opportunity to host elected officials, business leaders, and community leaders for a quick tour of their company.  These tours provide a chance to interact with local leaders and show how much the industrial community contributes to the local economy.
