First Edition - BEST SELLING BOOK - Georgia Manufacturing Directory

The Georgia Manufacturing Alliance (GMA) was founded in 2008 to connect, educate and promote manufacturing companies, engineers and designers throughout the state of Georgia. They recently compiled and released the first edition of the Georgia Manufacturing Directory and are thrilled that it has reached the status of “Best Seller” on Amazon.

GMA recognizes that most businesses prefer to support their local economy by purchasing supplies and services from companies in their area. The 2016 Directory provides a comprehensive listing of the 175 GMA members actively involved in creating a network to support the growth and promotion of manufacturing in Georgia. This is the first industry-supported directory created and distributed statewide. It was delivered to the CEO or purchasing agent of the top 1,000 manufacturing companies in Georgia, and all of GMA’s sponsors and members received a complimentary copy.

The 2016 Georgia Manufacturing Directory’s publication was officially launched on August 17th and quickly made it to #1 on Amazon’s “Best Seller” list in three categories: Consumer Guides, Catalogs & Directories, and Manufacturing. This placed the directory alongside other well-known publications such as “The Lean Six Sigma Pocket Tool Book,” “The Toyota Way” and Webster’s Dictionary. The ranking will change over time based on current book sales, but it will always be listed and recognized as a “Best Seller.” This is a major accomplishment for a book of this nature, particularly for its first edition. GMA is already working on the next edition scheduled for January/February 2017 and plans to release a new edition every six months.

Mike McGraw, Owner/Strategic-Partner of PrideStaff stated, “Many GMA members have been pleasantly surprised by the positive comments from their customers about having been included in a recent “Best Seller.” This directory shows how the business community is pulling together to support each other and it is creating business for the members of GMA. I’m happy to be a part of this movement as the Director of the Northeast Chapter of GMA!”

CEO of the GMA Jason Moss stated, “I’m proud of the success the directory has had so far, but I’m more excited about the results our members are getting from being part of this movement and having their company listed in a “Best Seller.” You can never be certain about how a project will turn out, but I had a strong hunch this would be a winner for everyone involved, and it has been.”

The 2016 Georgia Manufacturing Directory is now available online through the Amazon store at
