TUCKER, Ga. (March 11, 2020) – Tucker’s robust industrial corridors will be in the spotlight on April 22 as city leaders welcome the community to their second annual Manufacturing Day event. The half-day outing introduces stakeholders from around metro Atlanta to the many uses of Tucker’s industrial areas, as well as offering expert insights into commercial real estate trends in the area.
“Our industrial areas are more than 90 percent leased out and continuing to develop with some corporate names you know and others you may not,” said City of Tucker Community and Economic Development Director John McHenry. “This event is a chance for people to see the various ways industrial and manufacturing spaces can be used and how innovations are being developed here in Tucker’s industrial corridors.”
The day begins at Stone Ridge Event Center with a complimentary breakfast, followed by a panel discussion of industry experts focusing on state-of-the-art practices and regional resources. Participants will then board buses to tour four of the companies that call Tucker’s industrial areas home. This year’s tours will include Pepsi Bottling Company and Tucker Brewing Company/GPI Group and will be followed by a complimentary lunch with time to network upon return.
“It’s all about showcasing the different uses for these spaces,” said Tucker Business Outreach Coordinator Angela Brooks. “Of course, there’s traditional manufacturing, but we have brewing now, we have medical tech, we have manufacturers moving in from out of state and investors building new spec space. People are going to learn a lot on Manufacturing Day.”
Manufacturing Day is a partnership between the City of Tucker, the Tucker-Northlake Community Improvement District and the Tucker Summit Community Improvement District. Those interested in attending can email firstname.lastname@example.org for additional details.
