Why did we choose Garrett County for our business?
"When we first moved our business here, we had 14 full-time employees. Today we have 70 employees in the county and another 100+ in other locations. That growth was made possible through the outstanding support provided by the Garrett County Department of Economic Development, the Garrett County Chamber of Commerce, the Garrett Information Enterprise Center, and the county government. We're amazed by the number of highly qualified employees and the strong work ethic displayed here. What a great place to live and work!"
