New BBRED Series: From There to Here
The Bureau of Business Research and Economic Development (BBRED) has created a new series called From There to Here. This series will share how BBRED’s clients are using the research project. As reported in the November 2015 newsletter, the Development Authority of Bulloch County (DABC) received a study titled Manufacturing Industry Economic Impact Summary. DABC has used this study as part of its celebration of Manufacturing Appreciation Week, which is sponsored by the Georgia Association of Manufactures and was held during the week of April 18-22, 2016. It appeared in the Statesboro Herald in the Inside Bulloch Business column with DeWayne Grice on April 18, 2016. The full article is available here.
This study noted that 1,729 people are directly employed in Manufacturing in Bulloch County, which generates nearly $676 million annually for the Bulloch County Economy. In addition, DABC also shared this information at the Leadership Bulloch Alumni Community Panel Breakfast and with the DABC Board of Directors. BBRED would like to thank the DABC for requesting this report and for their support of this research program.
