Kason Industries recognizedBy W. WINSTON SKINNER
Kason Industries has been nominated for a Manufacturer of the Year Award.
The program is sponsored annually by the Georgia Department of Economic Development and the Technical College System of Georgia. Kason was not selected for the statewide award, but Greg Wright, president of the Coweta County Development Authority, said being nominated is a major accomplishment.
It was noted Finkelstein has been with Kason since the company came to Coweta County in 1980. That longevity speaks both to Finkelstein’s abilities and “to the stability of the business,” Brown remarked.
“Kason’s grown in the community,” Finkelstein said. “It’s important to employ people in the community and to produce things locally.” The company is “trying to bring some work back and make some more product” to be sold “all over the world,” he said.
