WTVM Editorial 9/19/18: Amazing Columbus

The latest amazing thing to happen in Columbus is that the city’s been chosen as the new location of a company that will bring with it up to 600 new jobs.

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - You’ve probably heard the slogan designed to showcase the many great things about Columbus, the slogan is “Columbus – We Do Amazing.”

And it’s true. Columbus is a jewel of the South, an amazing place.

Where entrepreneurs, inventors, educators, medical and technology experts and financial geniuses have pooled their talents over the years to create and nurture a diverse and still growing Columbus metro area. Our location is excellent, our roads make travel easy and our weather is terrific.

The latest amazing thing to happen in Columbus is that the city’s been chosen as the new location of a company that will bring with it up to 600 new jobs.

Global CallCenter Solutions (GCS) is a call center consulting company that will invest nearly $5 million dollars in Muscogee County.

As the economy gets stronger everywhere, GCS is just the latest company to recognize the value of our community and decide to come here to Columbus because of all our positive attributes, especially our educated work force.

Governor Deal touts the state as the number one choice for business and believes the investment by GCS in Columbus can grow. The Greater Columbus Chamber of Commerce and the Columbus Development Authority agree. They worked together to make the project and those hundreds of new jobs a reality.

We’re glad to welcome GCS to Columbus.

When positive economic news happens, it’s important for everyone to know about it.

One good economic story may inspire other investments, which that inspires more confidence in our region and in all of us, personally.

It’s a positive cycle that’s good for everyone and it’s another good example of how Columbus is living up to its slogan, “We Do Amazing.”
