The Albany-Dougherty Economic Development Commission announced the winners of the 2010 Industry Awards, which culminated the inaugural Albany-Dougherty Industry Celebration Week.The purpose of the celebration week is three-fold: Expose residents to the variety of industries located in the community; create exposure for local industries; and honor the accomplishments of industries. The 2010 awards were restructured from years past.

“In rethinking the way we recognize our industrial partners, two goals were to educate the public and the business community on the incredible and diverse industries located here,” said EDC President Ted Clem.

Earlier in the week the EDC hosted an industry reception and Albany-based Thrush Aircraft hosted an open house at its facility. Both events were part of industry celebration week.

At a recognition breakfast Wednesday, the EDC honored industries in four categories: economic impact; excellence in innovation; global commerce; and corporate community citizenship, which has been named the Good Life City Award.
