Georgia Manufacturing Alliance and Smith & Howard

2015 was a huge success and we are excited about what 2016 has in store.

2015 was a huge success for the Georgia Manufacturing Alliance (GMA). GMA had more than 1,500 people attend 73 events that supported Georgia's manufacturing community. As a result of this success, Smith and Howard has chosen to increase their sponsorship of GMA for 2016.

Jason Moss the founder and CEO of GMA said today, “This is exactly the type of company our organization has been seeking to partner with. Smith & Howard has a stellar reputation within the manufacturing community and serves many well-known brands. Not only have they been recommended by top manufacturing leaders in Georgia, but they were recognized this year as the number one firm in the nation among the elite 50 Best of the Best accounting firms by INSIDE Public Accounting and as a Top Accounting Firm to Work For by Accounting Today. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution has recognized the firm as a Top Atlanta Work Place for the past four consecutive years.” Moss goes on to add, “It is exciting to find a company who aligns so closely with our core values of customer service first while working to accomplish our mission to support, promote and grow manufacturing in Georgia.”

Debbie R. Torrance, CPA/PFS, Partner and Manufacturing/Distribution group leader at Smith & Howard stated, “We were motivated to grow our sponsorship of the Georgia Manufacturing Alliance and Manufacturing Summit based on the wide variety of events and services that GMA provides to the manufacturing community.” Torrance added, “Our manufacturing team has been impressed with the results that GMA has produced for Georgia manufacturers of all sizes and with GMA’s plan to continue to expand its reach to all levels within manufacturing organizations. We are committed to deliver additional resources to the members of GMA that will add value, including the monthly manufacturer’s Purchasing Managers Index Report (PMI) that we offer our readership each month.” Julie Barnes, Director of Marketing at Smith & Howard adds, “GMA has been a leader in providing unique networking opportunities for their members while growing strong sense of community throughout all aspects of the diverse manufacturing ecosystem. We look forward to seeing this area of the organization expand, as well.”

“Our organization is very excited to work with Smith & Howard. The resources now available as a result of this partnership will increased the value for all of our members,” said Moss “We are looking forward to deliver a full schedule of networking events, plant tours and training classes for our members in 2016.”
