Shaw said, “I am proud that we have been able to do quite a few of these type expansions, and we hope to be able to continue to do more of these in rural Georgia. Fifty more jobs in a town like Alamo, that’s big deal.”
He noted, “I have a passion, going back to when I was in the Legislature to help rural communities.

Regardless of where you are located, you need to have that savings to compete. We are always willing to work with others who are passionate about rural Georgia, like Sen. Tillery.”

I realized there are real high-paying, skilled jobs there that will directly benefit the community.”
