From small businesses to large industrial companies, Troup County is a great place to work! Once a small, little textile community, LaGrange and Troup County now boast a diverse economic base including some well-known "Fortune 500" companies. Troup County is fast becoming one of the nation’s leaders in advanced manufacturing, with leaders of national and foreign-owned multinational firms discovering the advantages of doing business in LaGrange, Hogansville and West Point.
The diversity of experience, culture, talent and progress has been a major draw to international companies operating locally. And that’s not to mention our ideal location near major interstate highways, a major international airport and an extensive rail freight infrastructure — all providing convenient access to markets the world over.
Troup County’s economy has always been driven by its people. The workforce and talent pool available in West Central Georgia are unmatched for a region this size anywhere in the country. This advantage has enabled Troup County to attract and grow an industry mix that appreciates and cultivates our workforce, making this locale all the more attractive for business expansion. This is further fueled by the collaborative mentality of local leaders; their willingness to work together in finding solutions that accommodate everyone and provide value to businesses and the greater community has enabled our region to achieve exemplary results. This is evidenced by several public/private projects that address the revitalization of our downtowns, the development and growth of myriad cultural assets, and, most importantly, the talent needs of Troup County’s incumbent and future industry clusters.
