We didn’t receive this kind of assistance when we relocated from Michigan to California.
We have been overwhelmed by the local support we have received here. It is obvious to us that we are relocating to a city that values business.

Everyone we have worked with has gone out of their way to help us.
The City has been so helpful to us. We’ve been overwhelmed. The Economic Development Agency, the Planning and Codes Department… everyone we have worked with has gone out of their way to help us. I can say with complete certainty that all of our company’s future growth will be in Gallatin.
CEO, Energy Automation Systems Inc.
I believe the GEAR program is the most pro-active and pragmatic group.
Having dealt with economic development groups in six different states, I believe the GEAR program is the most pro-active and pragmatic group with which I have worked. While any economic development group needs to work on bringing in new business to the area, the GEDA, through GEAR, consistently looks for ways to assist their existing companies and to patch them into the many state and local resources available to help them grow their business. I have often wondered why other economic development groups spend all their time recruiting businesses when it is far cheaper to keep the ones they have.
The area features an outstanding talent pool.
Gallatin’s location near the population center of North America and convenient distribution corridor help us to achieve our demanding customer service goals. Even more, the area features an outstanding talent pool for our fast-paced and increasingly technical business.
Executive Vice President, RR Donnelley
We have found a great workforce here.
We have found a great workforce here and been able to easily convince other
employees to relocate here because of the outstanding quality of life. Being in the heart
of the music industry in the Nashville area has been a natural fit and we have benefited
greatly from our relationships with city and state officials who understand business.
CEO, Samick Music Corporation
Our team is very excited to be a part of the Gallatin business community.
Our team is very excited to be a part of the Gallatin business community. We have an experienced management team that is committed to simple values: integrity, hard work and responding to customer needs. It was obvious during our search that Gallatin officials share those same values.”
