Forsyth County Economic Development

It's not hard to see what locating in Cumming, or surrounding Forsyth County, can do for a business. Just ask the dozens of new industries that have called Forsyth County home in recent years. It is no mystery why these businesses chose Forsyth County. A healthy economy, proximity to a major international airport, a network of interstate highways, government leadership that is responsive to the needs of business, and an educated labor force to entice industrial and commercial business development with staying power are just a few of the advantages that have proven to be catalysts of the economic growth in Forsyth County.

Location and transportation have been the keys to Forsyth County's economic resurgence. One can drive the "Golden Corridor," from the northern-most point of Forsyth County to downtown Atlanta via GA 400 in 40 minutes and reach the perimeter area of Atlanta in less than 30 minutes.

The cost of doing business in Cumming-Forsyth County is less than in any metro Atlanta community. Forsyth County is a Freeport County offering 100 percent tax exemption on inventory in all three categories: raw materials; goods in process; and finished goods held by the original manufacturer destined for out-of-state shipment. Cumming-Forsyth County maintains the pleasantries of country living with the benefits of close city proximity without the dollar deflating bite of high taxes and unemployment.
