Georgia is home to more than 200 automotive-related facilities, and the automotive industry contributes more than $3B to our economy. Leading automotive companies have consistently chosen Georgia as their home for manufacturing, assembly, headquarters, and innovation centers. Because of Georgia’s location on the East coast, the State has become the central supplier location for the automotive industry, providing companies access to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, the world’s busiest and most efficient airport, and the Port of Savannah, the leading eastern seaboard auto part import center. To better serve this niche market, GaMEP employs automotive experts to assist with industry needs. Contact Mike Stonecipher for automotive-focused services.
