Posted by Leah Brown on Apr 8, 2019 11:45:32 AM

 

Georgia Manufacturing Appreciation Week (MAW) is April 15-18, 2019! MAW was developed by the Technical College System of Georgia and the Georgia Department of Economic Development to celebrate the achievements of Georgia manufacturers.

The Henry County Development Authority will be spotlighting “Made in Henry” products and the companies that have manufacturing facilities in our community during MAW.
