“Having spent much of my career in manufacturing, I always enjoy getting an up-close look at manufacturing facilities in Georgia,” said Senator Perdue. “Georgia has been named the best state in the country in which to do business for six consecutive years, and much of that is because of investments from companies like Miracle-Gro. At the federal level, we’ve worked hard to get the economy going again, and Miracle-Gro’s employees are certainly benefiting from that. I’m delighted with the success Miracle-Gro has experienced in Georgia, and I appreciate their continued commitment to supporting communities in our state.”
