Economy in Peachtree City saw 2012 growth

January 5, 2013 by  

Peachtree City and the whole of Fayette County experienced a strong year through 2012 in terms of the economy, with the number of jobs also being increased.

The details of the The Fayette County Economic Index (FCEI) were released towards the end of the year, showing that the economy ended just shy of 5% ahead of the closing figure for 2011.

The FCEI, which also factors in major economic indicators, consumer confidence, and local taxes, is seen as an important meme on the present economic situation.

In addition, there was also a significant increase in the number of people in work. Across the entire county, over 50,000 people are now in employment, with many no doubt needing new business cards printing.

That moves the year-on-year total for employment in Fayette up by 3.1%, according to the figures from the Fayette County Development Authority (FCDA).

Indeed, print companies in the area will likely be responsible for further projects than this. The number of people with jobs in and around Peachtree City is at its highest since when the recession hit back in the fall of 2008.

The FCDA says that, altogether, the figures show that Fayette County is well on the road to recovery.

President and CEO, Matt Forshee said:

“We are very excited about this to help answer the question, ‘What is the economy doing in Fayette County?’”

Both business leaders and residents of the community here will be hoping that the upturn continues through 2013, delivering even greater news at the start of 2014.
