Dear Editor,

As we celebrate Manufacturing Appreciation Week in Georgia, April 14-18, 2014, the Thomaston-Upson County Industrial Development Authority (TUCIDA) would like to salute local manufacturers. Our community has a rich history of manufacturing and the diversity of our industries helps position Thomaston-Upson County in today’s competitive market. As America’s economy rebounds, our focus is to promote our skilled workforce, recruit new industry, and assist existing industries as we “Build Upson.” Our local industries create products that our entire community can be proud of. We congratulate the following local industries during Georgia’s “Manufacturing Appreciation Week:” 1888 Mills, AVAPCO, Animal Health & Sciences, Chief Manufacturing, Criterion Technology, Dart Container Corporation, E7 Technologies, Interfor, Lancaster Energy, Quad/Graphics, Standard Textiles, Tencate, Thomaston Mills, Turkey Creek Snacks, Inc.
