Griffin-Spalding Development Authority receives award

 The Georgia Economic Developers Association (GEDA) has recognized the Griffin-Spalding Development Authority for an “outstanding achievement in the location/expansion of business in Georgia.”

Griffin-Spalding County was recognized because of the Caterpillar project that was recently announced locally.

The project will create over 200 new jobs and preserve over 600 jobs, as well as generating $120 million in capital investment, the single largest investment announcement in the community’s history.

This is now the fourth year that GEDA has recognized major projects from the previous year.

In what has become a major portion of the Annual Awards Ceremony,GEDA recognizes recipients in three categories: small a county with a population of 50,000 and under; medium – a county with a population of 50,001 to100,000; and large a county with a population of over 100,000.

The Deal of the Year Awards recognize outstanding achievement in the location or expansion of new businesses in the state of Georgia that meet community economic development goals and involve significant community program support, such as financial or permitting assistance, workforce development and state financial support.
