“I am proud to have my company, Steeda Autosports in Valdosta, Georgia and appreciate the support of the Valdosta Lowndes County Industrial Authority. Steeda has had the opportunity to grow and expand our operations in Valdosta creating a great stability in the current economic conditions. Because we do have the most advance manufacturing capabilities here in Valdosta we’ve expanded into other product markets, allowing us to open another company here in Valdosta, LSR Performance and begin distribution of performance parts to General Motors. Valdosta has given Steeda the opportunity to be competitive in a world market to create more jobs. I plan to have a couple hundred employees here in Valdosta in the next five years because we do see economic change in our industry as the leader of Ford’s Performance parts and the Mustang’s brand expanding around the world. Wiregrass Georgia Technical College has a first-class Automotive Technology program that has provided Steeda with a talented workforce that excels in producing automotive performance parts for customers around the world.”
