LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga.—The Georgia Manufacturing Alliance (GMA) offers a tour of the World Emblem plant in Atlanta, Georgia on April 29.
The GMA is a membership-based industry organization for manufacturers and suppliers in the Georgia manufacturing community. The organization was founded in 2008 and offers manufacturing plant tours, networking opportunities, and educational training. The organization is compiled of six chapters that cover the entire state of Georgia.
According to the event page for the plant tour, attendees will learn about the textile industry while touring World Emblem’s 70,000-square foot facility which houses emblems, embroidered patches, high-visibility striping, transfer, and labels.
