A Legacy Lives On

Ray Anderson, the founder of Interface, the Atlanta-based modular carpet manufacturer, left behind a legacy far greater than his company.

State of the Georgia Ports

Last week at the State of the Ports Address, the Georgia Ports Authority (GPA) laid out an ambitious agenda to surpass New York and New Jersey to become the biggest port on the East Coast. “What was unfathomable a decade ago is in our reach,” GPA Executive Director Curtis Foltz told the crowd of some 1,350 attendees at Savannah's International Trade and Convention Center. The dredging of Savannah Harbor could commence in a matter of months, and word has already gotten out, Foltz noted. He reported 1,900 new ports-related jobs this past year with the addition of Dynacraft bikes, Nordic cold storage, Bed, Bath & Beyond, and other companies. “The U.S. recovery has been predominantly in retail, and we've benefited as the gateway to the Southeast,”...

Supporting Electric Vehicle Use

Georgia recently vaulted to the top of the list in electric vehicle (EV) sales by state, thanks in part to a $5,000 tax credit granted to electric vehicle drivers.

A new incentive program from the Georgia Environmental Finance Authority (GEFA) designed to increase the number of charging stations around the state should make it much easier for EV drivers to plug in. Charge Georgia will provide colleges, universities, technical colleges, state agencies, cities and counties with a rebate of up to $40,000 to install EV charging stations on campuses and facilities. The application period for the program opens Tuesday, Oct. 7, 2014, at www.gefa.org....
