GOLDEN TRIANGLE, Miss. (WCBI) — The economic successes keep coming for the Golden Triangle area and its lead job recruitment agency took time out to celebrate today.

With names like Yokohama Tire, CalStar, C Spire and others signing on the dotted line this year, the Golden Triangle Development Link’s celebrated a year with more than 500 million dollars in investment in its three counties.

More than 60 businesses were represented at the annual luncheon to talk about the first full year as a regional group and prospects on the horizon.

Southern Business and Development Magazine ranks the region as one of the best anywhere to invest.

“This whole Triangle region has been incredibly successful, for the size of this community, this region, it’s probably had more activity on the manufacturing front than any other place in the South,” said Michael Randle, owner and editor of the nationally recognized publication.

The annual event was held at East Mississippi Community College.
