Made in Cedartown: HON Company among statewide manufacturers highlighted in 2018
The “Buy From Georgia” movement swept across the state in 2018 and continues to highlight consumer-based goods that can be purchased in a store or on Amazon.
The HON Company was one of several across the state being promoted in Summer 2018 for being not only a longtime manufacturer who continues to invest in their capabilities locally, but one that also sends products out worldwide.
Studies show the average consumer cannot name three products manufactured in their state, and the Georgia Manufacturing Alliance is on a mission to educate people about what is made in their community and the impact those products have on their local economy.
“We can and will be the leader of this manufacturing renaissance by supporting the “Buy From Georgia” movement. This program helps people become aware of how they make a difference by buying locally made goods,” Jason Moss, CEO of the Georgia Manufacturing Alliance, said.
The Georgia Manufacturing Alliance invites consumers to tag along as they travel across the state highlighting 16 manufacturing facilities in July. To learn more about these tours and to register, please visit: www. GeorgiaManufacturingAlliance.com
Back in 2018, officials came to Polk County to tour The HON Company, which produces in the Cedartown plant the high-quality steel and wooden office furniture that is used around the country, and even here locally in schools.
They make products like AllSteel, Maxon & Basyx and more at the 750,000 square foot facility in the industrial park of West Avenue.
Officials are also stopped by the Carrollton-based Southwire 12 for Life plant, one of the largest cable and wire producers in North America.
The HON visit was part of a 16-plant tour during July 2018, which took officials all over the state.
