Major Employers

Success leading to success.

From global leaders to enterprising locals, industry thrives in Meriwether County.

In a hospital, a life is saved through the state-of-the-art interventional radiology of AngioDynamics. On a wet road, an auto crash is averted by Mando America’s high-performance anti-lock brakes, and a family moves on more safely, protected by the strength of top-quality door frames made by Dongwon Autoparts Technology and guided by thermoplastic pavement made by Sherwin Williams. The beauty of the past is shared and enjoyed through the antique woods of Vintage Lumber, while the future is under construction using plywood made to Georgia-Pacific’s meticulous standards.

Today, people are healthier, safer and more successful thanks to the world-class employers of Meriwether County.  We’re pleased they call us home, and we’re ready to provide all the support they need to stay and grow with us. We never rest on the laurels of our industry leaders.

We earn the business of our businesses every day.

Case in point: Mando America Corporation’s new casting plant, opened in 2014.  While the company was already operating a successful brake plant in Meriwether, when it came time to choose a site for a new casting plant, Mando made the smart move: Comparison shopping. With no shortage of domestic and global sites to choose from, the company conducted a thorough site review, and when the data and facts were compiled, all those site choices were narrowed to one. Mando’s $80 million casting facility has opened across the street from its brake manufacturing plant. Together, the two operations will employ over 1,000 people, and Mando will be become Meriwether’s largest employer.

Head to head, site to site, Meriwether makes the grade not only for global and national leaders (companies like Georgia-Pacific, Sherwin Williams, Dongwon AutopartTechnology and AngioDynamics, named as a “Hot 100 Company” by Businessweek), but also for local up-and-comers like Vintage Lumber, which began when owner William Everett wanted antique heart pine for a cabin retreat he was building in Gay. Today the company is premier supplier of antique heart pine, oak and old growth cypress, serving leading builders, architects and interior designers.

With a strategic location, great workforce and high-value incentives—in welcoming communities ready to give their all—companies both large and small are enjoying unqualified success in Meriwether. And that’s great for everyone.
