Forty plus diverse industries continue to thrive in Fitzgerald and Ben Hill County. Our community has a national reputation for attracting and retaining industry.
In the past two decades, more than 2,500 jobs have been created which led the Wall Street Journal to dub the community “the colossus of economic development from nowhere”. But those of us who live here know that it is indeed “somewhere” and that our quality of life is exceptional.
Not content to rest on our laurels, we are making aggressive plans for continued economic growth. We would love to have the pleasure of your company!
In November, 2012 a group of Industry, Individuals, Small Business, Education, Government and Retired Citizen met to discuss the Economic Impact on Fitzgerald/Ben Hill Co. After much discussion these are the results from the meeting.
