Everywhere you look, business and industry are prospering here, from the sleek new refrigerated trailers rolling off the production line at Great Dane to top-of-the-line architectural glass being produced at the Viracon plant. No wonder global and national leaders like Briggs & Stratton (here since 1995) are bullish about the future in Bulloch.

At the company’s Statesboro facility in Gateway Industrial Park, the Briggs & Stratton team of 500+ employees produces more than 1.1 million engines annually, primarily for riding lawn tractors marketed around the world.
Great Dane Trailers

With cutting-edge technologies such as robotic welding, automated production processes, and numerous green initiatives, the plant will produce 5,000 refrigerated trailers annually.
The nation’s leading single-source architectural glass fabricator, Viracon chose Statesboro for a manufacturing location over site competition from 26 other states. It’s a choice that has reaped dividends, as Viracon recently unveiled a $6 million renovation that resulted in a streamlined coating process, greener operations, and a brighter work environment.
