In addition to Elbert County’s reputation of being the “Granite Capital of the World”, industry giants such as Pilgrim’s Pride, Hailo, Moller Tech, and Bubba Foods (Bubba Burgers) are just a few of the superior companies that chose Elbert County to do business.
Our current industry is made up of companies that provide logistics services such as trucking, rail, and software-used by companies such as manufacturers, wholesalers and distribution centers. We have been able to provide to them:
Expedited delivery to domestic markets by extensive rail systems and access to seven major U.S. interstate highways.
The ability to export via deep-water sea ports in Savannah and Brunswick.
The ability to use the State of Georgia’s intellectual technology Center of Innovation for Logistics and research.
A competitive workforce through Georgia’s various academic programs and customized training.
