Target Sectors

Assets for Diversity

When it comes to the fundamentals for success across sectors, Cook County is solid, and solidly positioned for growth. The “Steel Building Capital of the South” is ready to build your business quickly and from the ground up:

Manufacturing: BASF found the perfect chemistry here in Cook County, and it’s easy to see why, with Cook’s four key sector assets—land, location, leadership and labor—an offer in abundance, beginning with ample acreage ready to be parceled to precise needs at the South Georgia Megasite. This rail-served site, with immediate access to I-75, also provides infrastructure ready to deliver high-capacity, low-cost utilities and a robust labor force of 115,000, skilled and work-ready. Supported by some of the finest financial incentives in the nation customized for maximum impact, manufacturing in Cook County is tooled up for profitability and productivity.

Agricultural processing/value added agricultural products: In choosing Cook County, Sanderson Farms recognized how much this county brings to the table for Ag producers. Long a South Georgia agricultural leader and an active participant in the Georgia Grown program, Cook offers not just experience and expertise, but also significant natural resources like a low-cost water, with an excess capacity of 9 million gallons per day. Strategic proximity and I-75 logistics, plus low costs across the board, make Cook the natural choice for producers looking to reach—and conquer—Florida’s dense consumer market.

 

Light manufacturing, distribution and warehousing: Stretching from Miami to Michigan, I-75 serves as one of the nation’s premier commercial corridors, and Cook County’s immediate I-75 access positions distribution and light manufacturing for maximum speed and market penetration. Proximity plus attractive costs of business and living make Cook County the ideal pivot point for distribution to the booming Florida consumer market.

 

Tourism: Visitors flock to Cook County to kick back and relax at the 375-acre lake and miles of hiking trails and nature viewing at the 1600-acre Reed Bingham State Park. On the other hand, crowds pour in for high-performance automotive excitement at the South Georgia Sports Park’s 1/4-mile and 1/8-mile tracks. With recreation at every speed, and with gorgeous scenery in a deep-rooted community, Georgia’s Daylily Capital is on the rise as a top Georgia tourism destination.

 

Advanced manufacturing: Cook County offers the ideal environment for cutting-edge productivity, starting with serene open spaces and a high quality of life that managers crave for themselves and their families. With a skilled, work-ready labor force and a relative proximity to the Southeast’s leading universities and R&D innovation, Cook County offers space to think and the teamwork to perform.
