Greene County A 'Manufacturing Location No-Brainer'

Originally published: 2013-06-06 11:23:33
Last modified: 2013-06-06 11:26:29

Greene County has been featured in Southern Business & Development Magazine's "Ten Top 10s" edition.

In the article titled, "Ten More No-Brainer Manufacturing Locations in the American South," Greene County is recognized as having a long history of manufacturing success.

That success was attributed in the article to a concept of teamwork between local industrial leaders, banks, and utility companies by Tom Ferguson, president and CEO of the Greene County Partnership.

The article was published in the magazine's winter 2013 edition.

The article began by stating that, "manufacturing has taken over the American South's economy.

"So, in last year's Ten Top 10 we gave you 10 locations in the South that have a long manufacturing sector history. Here are 10 more."


"Twenty years ago a forward-thinking group of Greeneville and Greene County leaders dared to step outside the traditional way of thinking to combine four long-standing community organizations into what has become one of the most results-oriented economic and community development organizations in the country.

"The Greene County Partnership, now comprised of the Chamber of Commerce, Economic Development, Tourism, Education & Workforce Development and Keep Greene Beautiful programs, attributes its success to one simple idea: teamwork.

"When we have a prospect on the line, we immediately pull together our team of community leaders including mayors, bank representatives, local businessmen and representatives from each utility company," Ferguson said in the article.

"When you combine this elite group with representatives of the Tennessee Economic and Community Development Department and the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA), prospects have access to all the key decision-makers, as well as knowledgeable individuals who can provide attractive incentives, bringing all the necessary elements together for the prospect's convenience.

"In addition, having a product (Greene County) that is extremely marketable goes a long way in helping to 'seal the deal,'" the magazine quoted Ferguson.

The other locations featured in the article are:

* Mississippi County, Ark.;

* Ascension Parish, La.;

* Florence County, S.C.;

* Monroe, N.C.;

* Morristown, Tenn.;

* Paragould, Ark.;

* Dublin-Laurens County, Ga.;

* Florence-Shoals region, Ala.; and

* Jackson, Tenn.
