 Top 30 Georgia Manufacturing Establishments
 Ranked by Employment Size
 TWINSBURG, Ohio, June 29 /PRNewswire/ -- The textile and apparel industries make up the basic fabric of Georgia's manufacturing marketplace, according to a study of the just-released database for the "1994 Harris Georgia Manufacturers Directory." These sectors, combined with the fast-growing food manufacturing and processing industry, represent the companies where the bulk of the state's employees collect their paychecks.
 "This is the most comprehensive database ever compiled on Georgia's manufacturing sector," said Robert Harris, president of Twinsburg, Ohio- based Harris Publishing Company. "Our policy is to contact every manufacturer in the states we publish. We work within a one percent margin of error. Our company profiles are extremely detailed, which means the compilation of a new database requires extensive research. The reason for this is, that unlike other database publishers, we give equal regard to small mom and pop shops, as well as a state's highly visible manufacturing firms. So, anyone who uses a Harris database to market to Georgia's manufacturers can be assured that they will reach the right contact -- whether they're marketing to small, medium, or large companies -- the very first time."
 The database, available in diskette, CD-ROM, print directory, and custom data formats, reveals that 593,294 of the state's citizens are employed in the manufacturing sector. Leading the way, with 15.77 percent of the state's workforce, is the textile mill industry with 511 firms employing 93,562 workers. Second in line with 12.23 percent of the workforce, is the closely related apparel industry with 465 manufacturing companies employing 72,569 workers.
 Third, with 11.77 percent of the state's employees, is the food products industry, which includes establishments manufacturing or processing food and beverages for human consumption and related products, such as ice, chewing gum, vegetable and animal fats and oils, and prepared feeds for animals. These 472 plants employ a total of 69,824 people.
 The fourth major group, representing 6.36 percent of the workforce, consists of establishments engaged in the manufacturing of industrial and commercial machinery. There are 749 companies in Georgia whose 37,705 workers manufacture everything from engines, computers, and farm machinery, to hoists, cranes and monorails.
 Printing and publishing establishments take fifth position in the employment race with 6.10 percent of the manufacturing workforce. The state's printing industry boasts 1,088 companies. The 36,192 employees who work in this field are engaged in printing by one or more of the common processes, such as letterpress, lithography, gravure, or screen. This sector also includes those companies which perform services for the printing trade, such as bookbinding and platemaking.
 A sister sector, consisting of companies which manufacture paper and allied products, ranks sixth with 5.48 percent of the workforce. There are 218 such establishments in Georgia, employing 32,519 workers. These firms are primarily engaged in the manufacture of pulps from wood and other cellulose fibers and the manufacture of paper and paperboard. The paper industry can be thanked for everything from paper bags and boxes to envelopes and facial tissues.
 Next in line with 5.46 percent of the state's employees, are companies manufacturing electronic and other electrical equipment and components. The 204 companies in this sector employ a total of 32,394 workers. This is followed by establishments engaged in producing transportation equipment, which constitutes 5.21 percent of Georgia's manufacturing workforce. These 177 firms and their 30,906 employees turn out motor vehicles, travel trailers, campers, boats, and aerospace products, among other things.
 Georgia's chemicals producing sector represents 4.99 percent of the state's workforce and ranks ninth in manufacturing employment. There are 434 companies in this group, employing 29,605 workers. These are the companies that make chemical products which end up as finished goods such as drugs, cosmetics, and soaps; or to be used as materials or supplies in other industries for paints, fertilizers, and explosives.
 Employment at companies that manufacture lumber and wood products contribute 4.40 percent of the manufacturing workforce with 550 firms and 26,104 workers. Fabricated metal products manufacturing represents 4.17 percent of the workforce with 606 companies employing 24,757 workers. Measuring, analyzing, and controlling instruments manufacturing employment accounts for 3.86 percent of the state's manufacturing workforce with 123 companies employing 22,917 people.
 Georgia's smaller manufacturing groups include the stone, clay, glass, and concrete products sector with 3.51 percent of the state's manufacturing employment, rubber and plastic products with 3.09 percent manufacturing employment, primary metal products with 2.08 percent manufacturing employment, furniture and fixtures with 1.60 percent manufacturing employment, and petroleum refining and related products with 0.64 percent of the manufacturing workforce.
 Fran Carlsen, editorial manager for Harris, has monitored the compiling process for the new manufacturing database. "This is our first year to publish the Harris Georgia Manufacturers Directory," says Carlsen. "It provides detailed profiles for the 7,072 privately owned and publicly owned firms in the state. Along with names and titles of 12,108 key decision-makers, you get ownership type, phone and fax numbers, primary and secondary SIC codes, annual sales, year established, computer make and model, in-depth product descriptions, and much more. Equally important, the database is 100 percent telephone verified for accuracy. It's a must-have for sales and marketing managers, human resources departments, and anyone doing marketing research."
