A central location and fast-moving logistics equal powerful market reach—that’s one reason manufacturers choose Washington County. Materials and products flow in and out with ease and cost-effective speed through rail, highway, air, and global port. Another reason Washington County is the go-to industry choice—workforce performance boosted by a rich manufacturing heritage and a talent pipeline powered by Oconee Fall Line Technical College. OFTC stays in close and constant communication with area industry to answer workforce needs through credit and non-credit programs, customized training, and flexible pathways to training and employment such as apprenticeships.

Powerfully resourced acreage and an attitude for innovation are also important. Long known as the kaolin capital of the world, home of global kaolin leaders, the county has now welcomed bitcoin mining, easily accommodating large-scale clean energy needs through the cost-competitive service of the county’s three electric providers. Two rail-served industrial sites, both certified as Georgia Ready for Accelerated Development (GRAD), together offer 700+ acres ready for custom parceling. In a low-cost setting where small town values support excellence and success, manufacturing enjoys room to grow and a warm welcome in receptive communities.
