Cairo -- Grady County developers are predicting at least 400 NEW jobs will be created for the county in 2006. Businesses in the Heritage Industrial Complex are growing.

MacTavish Furniture is in the final stages of construction on their new warehouse that will bring another 100 jobs to Grady County.

Seminole Marine Salt Water Boats also recently expanded their operations, and others are considering Grady County for new business.

"Two weeks ago we had seven good, qualified prospects come to Grady County to look. We've never had seven in one month, and we had seven in one week, so there's that kind of activity out there," said Rick McCaskill, Joint Development Authority Executive Director.

McCaskill credits Georgia's low tax structure and absence of additional fees that other states charge as company incentives to grow or move to Grady County.
