About Us 


The Dublin-Laurens County Development Authority is an award winning economic development organization representing all of Dublin and Laurens County.  The overall objective of the DLCDA is to create jobs through the attraction of new businesses, assist local companies with expansion and growth and create additional tax revenue for local governments and boards of education.   

In 2015, Site Selection Magazine ranked our Development Authority as a Top Twenty economic development organization in the United States.  With the support of the DLCDA board of directors, the Development Authority staff offers creative incentive packages, one-on-one guidance and support for any business looking to locate or expand into the Dublin-Laurens County area. The Authority stresses the quality location, leadership, and livability of Laurens County. Companies that locate here are not forgotten upon arrival.  They become a valuable part of the existing industry base here, and we take pride in our commitment to support those industries.  In order to help facilitate this, we work to help industries stay on top of important topics, keep them informed of available incentives and programs which we do though one-on-one meetings and quarterly existing industry meetings. Personalized tours, presentations tailored to specific requests, real estate descriptions and details, introduction to local entities and institutions, and consultation are all part of what the DLCDA has been created to do.
