    Liberty County Business of the Year


    International-Greetings-Award-web-2015-(1).jpgMIDWAY, Ga. — High-end giftwrap and stationery manufacturer International Greetings USA recently was named Liberty County Business of the Year by the Liberty County Chamber of Commerce.
     
    The United Kingdom-headquartered company was nominated by the Liberty County Development Authority (LCDA) in recognition of its business performance and community outreach initiatives.
     
    The company located in Liberty County in 1996 with about 65 employees in a 100,000 square-foot facility and now employs 180 over more than 500,000 square feet.
     
    “We are honored and delighted to have been nominated as 'Business of the Year' and of our long association with the Liberty County community,” said Paul Fineman, CEO of International Greetings PLC. “Our team at International Greetings USA will especially be thinking of our former CEO, Rich Eckman, who would have been so thrilled to have accepted this award on their behalf. We are humbled to represent Rich and our team and truly excited with this wonderful accolade.”
     
    International Greetings USA Director of Manufacturing Larry Garman and Vice President of Finance Wain Yarber accepted the award Friday during the chamber’s annual banquet.
     
    LCDA CEO Ronald E. Tolley worked with International Greetings leaders about 20 years ago to bring them to Midway Industrial Park.
     
    “It has been a pleasure to work over two decades with International Greetings leaders as their business has flourished in Liberty County,” Tolley said. “We have enjoyed seeing their business expand and value the company’s civic engagement.”
     
    The company has donated more than 20,000 rolls of wrapping paper to Operation Homefront Fort Stewart in addition to sponsoring 30 angels and donating 6,000 rolls of gift wrap to Salvation Army Angel Tree. Senior managers also participate in several charity golf tournaments in addition to making frequent donations to local churches, family readiness groups and nursing homes.
