To Our Prospective Business Partners:
Choosing a new location for your company can be a challenging process. We understand the many factors that go into your decision and will work diligently with you to determine if a location within the Columbus, Georgia Region is the right choice for your business.
As you investigate your options, consider the many benefits our area has to offer:
A range of economic incentives that effectively lower the cost of doing business.
Abundant resources including a strong utility network and more fiber optic capability than any other community of our size in Georgia. Plus, a strong transportation system, market-ready property and a Foreign Trade Zone that translates to lower costs and faster supply chain access.
A large, well-trained workforce. Our proximity to the Fort Benning Army installation provides a ready-supply of educated spouses, plus, thousands of soldiers who transition to civilian life each year. And we offer excellent educational resources and a no-cost employee training program.
A pro-business environment that’s made nearly $3 billion in capital investments and created more than 20,000 new jobs since 1999. Plus, less than four percent of our workplaces have third-party representation and we’re known for streamlined regulation and approvals.
A history of public/private partnerships that’s funded more than $100 million in cultural arts projects plus infrastructure support, a 16-mile Riverwalk and a 10,000-seat civic center.
The high quality of life you’ll be able to offer employees with low crime rates and a low cost of living, plus, a wealth of educational and cultural resources.
Your own Project Management Team from day one ensures that your company gets the assistance you need, every step of the selection, relocation and startup process.
Thank you for considering the Columbus, Georgia Region. We look forward to helping you make the right location choice for your company.
