Advanced-Process Manufacturing

Albany-Dougherty County has been a manufacturing community since its early days. Today, there are 84 manufacturing businesses employing an average of 3,375 people (U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, fourth quarter 2010). Our industries manufacture everything from airplanes and tanks to chemical additives, heat wraps and paper towels – and that’s just a sampling. Due to the rich agricultural industry within Southwest Georgia, Albany’s food processing diversity ranges from snacks and peanut butter to nuts and beer. Some would say that’s a rather nice combination.
