Business Spotlight

We Want to Spotlight You!

Are you a business owner in Lumpkin County? Or would you like to nominate a local business to be featured in our “Business Spotlight?” The “Business Spotlight” is intended to share contributions related to workforce development, economic investment, and/or community involvement made by Lumpkin County businesses through the Authority’s social media pages and website.


Truist works to inspire and build better lives and communities, including here in Lumpkin County! The Truist Foundation provides financial support to higher educational institutions that have projects and programs focused on leadership development, economic mobility, thriving communities, and educational equity.  The Truist Foundation recently partnered with the University of North Georgia Mike Cottrell College of Business in recognition of UNG’s focus on building better lives for students and communities UNG serves.

Additionally, the Truist Cybersecurity team, led by Liz Popella, recently participated in the UNG Cyber Career Fair on Thursday, October 27.  The event was an excellent opportunity for Truist and other partners to connect with students for internships and full-time job opportunities in cybersecurity and computer science. 

Thank you to Truist for the workforce development, capital investment, and corporate responsibility made here in Lumpkin County!


Start with the Best, Build the Best!

Since 1999 Hawg Halters Inc. has been on a mission to challenge the status quo of a very dynamic and ever-changing V-Twin Custom Parts Marketplace in North America. In a market dominated at times by imported products, HHI created a supply line proudly designed and manufactured in their Dahlonega, Georgia facility.  Built-in “Our House” is a source of great pride for all the staff at HHI.

The evolution of HHI has included the adoption of industry-leading technologies in Solids based computer-aided design and finite element analysis which allows us to perfect our product design execution.  HHI carefully selects materials of the highest qualities including custom-made aircraft grade 6061 billet aluminum built to exacting HHI specifications, and the latest stainless steel alloys to deliver the best performing products in their categories.
