Sylvester-- A Worth County manufacturing business is set to expand with the help of state money.  

Southern Heritage Woodworks in Sylvester is one of five businesses approved today for One Georgia Equity Awards. The business turns century-old virgin timber from cotton mills into hardwood floors, paneling and furniture.

A $125,000 low interest Equity loan will allow them to expand with new machinery and more products. They'll also hire up to seven more employees over the next year. David Acord started the business about ten years ago. He's thrilled to see hard work pay off.  

"Started in my backyard in an old barn and we built the business up, bought some property from my brother and then the business just kept growing, was blessed every year," says Acord.

"This is the first OneGeorgia grant that we have received here in Worth County," says Worth County Economic Development Authority Executive Director Alex McCoy.  

Worth County Chamber of Commerce and Economic Development Authority members were in Vidalia today to receive the OneGeorgia award.  They hope it's just the beginning of even more economic development in Worth County.
