Take a look at what Savannah Has to Offer

Sometimes the hardest part is knowing where to start. Thankfully, the simple act of being on this page is just the start you need. When locating to the Savannah region, think of SEDA as your ultimate connector. From finding the ideal site to filling workforce needs to accessing available incentives and beyond, we mobilize our proven connections for your ultimate gain.

But what you really want to know is, “Why Savannah?”

Savannah is the fastest growing industrial market in the United States. Our location on the Atlantic Ocean gives you the freedom to operate on a global scale with access to the third busiest and fastest-growing port in the nation. Within 300 miles of Savannah there are 11 major metro areas, eight major international airports, five major ports and 34.6 million residents. And our nationally top-ranked highway systems of Interstate 95 and Interstate 16 put you in immediate reach of it all. 

As for workforce, 18 area colleges and universities – from creative arts to engineering – are actively preparing more than 65,000 students. And each month, over 350 “heroes for hire” exit area military bases ready for what’s next. Proactive steps have also been taken by means of the Workforce Initiatives Fund, which will help advance targeted workforce solutions and attract top talent through steps such as helping licensed childcare facilities become Quality Rated.

Like you, there was a time when companies like Gulfstream, JCB, Mitsubishi and FUJI were also starting the process of locating to Savannah. We were there for them, and we’ll be there for you, too.
