When Stan Griffis speaks, Oconee leaders listen

A lesson learned for Oconee County’s industrial-seeking efforts can be learned from the man who heads operations for the A-I-D Company, which has moved across the Georgia line to buy and move into the county’s last spec building in the Oconee Commerce Park on highway 11. At the “State of Oconee” meeting, Stan Griffis credited three factors for relocating its flight control rod plant from Rabun County, where it has been since 1948: professionalism, infrastructure, and logistics. Among those by name he thanked was Jim Alexander, who worked to land A-I-D before retiring. And Alexander repeated to 96.3/WGOG NEWS that you should never under estimate the value created by manufacturing jobs. A-I-D’s Griffis made clear his company has been impressed by the local and area education offerings, especially schools that instruct students in manufacturing.
