Ribbon Cutting ceremony at the Georgia Manufacturing Alliance’s (GMA) new headquarters in Lawrenceville, GA was celebrated by more than 70 guests including the representatives of GMA Members, Gwinnett Chamber, and Gwinnett County. GMA has been supporting the manufacturing community statewide since 2008.
Jason Moss, founder, and CEO of the Georgia Manufacturing Alliance said, “Over the past 10 years, we have built a solid foundation of leaders statewide that will be able to support the imminent growth of manufacturing in Georgia. We are excited about what the future holds for our members and the manufacturing community in our state”.
Welcoming the guests, Mr. Moss declared that the BuyFromGeorgia.com website has been redesigned to highlight over a 1,000 Georgia made products that can be bought via Amazon. The interesting part of the event was that the refreshments served at the event were the products that can be bought on the site, including Coke, Combos, Hostess Snacks, Solo Plates, Starbucks K-Cups, SunnyD, and Wrigley’s Gum. A local bakery, Special Kneads & Treats, also supplied assorted hand-crafted cupcakes for the GMA Ribbon Cutting. Special Kneads and Treats, Inc., a nonprofit specialty bakery, concentrated on providing Special Needs adults within the surrounding community a place to learn a skill and develop a sense of accountability and pride.
Moss added, “We want to encourage everyone to support their local community and make a purchase on BuyFromGeorgia.com to help support and grow jobs in Georgia. Shoppers who purchase through BuyFromGeorgia.com receive the benefits of shopping through Amazon for 1,000s of name brand and unique items that are produced in our great state.”
