Meriwether County IDA

You’ll go far because we go deep.

A community and leadership open for business.

You could say that success in Meriwether County is all about drive. With a location offering immediate access to I-85, Meriwether positions your operation approximately 22 highway miles from KIA Motors Manufacturing Georgia. Meriwether is also just a short drive (35 miles) from Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, 40 miles from Columbus and 60 miles from Macon; our highway connections ensure easy reach to Georgia deepwater ports and thus international markets.

Location + Leadership: Proximity and logistical assets, however, are just the beginning of Meriwether advantages. The results-driven leadership of Meriwether County also sets us apart. Our traditions of leadership go back over a hundred years, since the beginning of the 20th century when the nation’s titans of industry came here to refresh and recharge, drawn by the spas and deep mineral springs of the county. Franklin Roosevelt came later to sample the waters and set up his “Little White House” in Meriwether. It was President Roosevelt who was instrumental in the adoption of the name “Warm Springs.”

Today, those warm waters are part of our history as we move into the future as a key center for global industry, offering a strategic wellspring of support from pro-business leadership, including an exceptional depth of financial and industrial resources at both the state and local level. As a result, our manufacturers are enjoying impressive outcomes and return on investment.

At the Meriwether County Development Authority, our capabilities are strong; our commitment is unmatched, beginning with a responsive, professional staff ready not just with promises but with expert, enthusiastic follow through.
