With networking events, plant tours and more already scheduled, the new year could be the best yet for GMA members.
ATLANTA, GEORGIA, UNITED STATES, February 1, 2024 /EINPresswire.com/ — Georgia Manufacturing Alliance (GMA) closed out 2023 with a record number of networking opportunities, educational events and plant tours for its members. There were more than 50 such experiences offered throughout the state for GMA members this year alone.
Founder and CEO Jason Moss’s passion for growing Georgia’s manufacturing community and for keeping jobs in the state led him start GMA in 2008. Since then, industry leaders across the state joined the organization to network, find new customers and suppliers, stay educated regarding trends and technology, and tour world-class facilities.
Many exciting opportunities are already on the 2024 GMA calendar. Two business-to-business networking events were held in January, along with a plant tour of Iron Age Office. The factory tour sold out, and the waiting list grew as the date approached.
The schedule for February is quite full, beginning with a plant tour of Aristotle Metal Works, slated for Feb. 12. The Georgia Manufacturing Alliance will celebrate its 16th anniversary at Creative Comforts in Athens on Feb. 20. An educational panel discussion on the challenges and opportunities for local sourcing will be held Feb. 22nd.
In March, GMA members will tour the Kia Georgia plant in West Point, and in May, a tour of the Gulf Stream plant in Savannah is planned.
Scheduled in between these notable tours are twice-monthly networking and educational events. Manufacturing professionals throughout the state can participate in these important opportunities.
“Georgia’s manufacturing community is strong and positioned to grow even stronger,” said Moss. “The state’s geographical location and climate, a major shipping port, airport, and other transportation options, combined with a strong available workforce, make our state the ideal location for manufacturers.”
