Congressman Earl L. “Buddy” Carter Visits Savannah Global Solutions in Bryan County

Development Authority of Bryan County – Aug 26, 2020

August 26, 2020 – Pembroke, GA – Congressman Earl L. “Buddy” Carter (R-Ga) recently visited Mark and Trudy Sauer at their Pembroke-based company, Savannah Global Solutions, to tour the facility and see the quality products and jobs the company provides. Despite the challenges many businesses are facing during these ever-changing times, Savannah Global Solutions has not only been able to keep their workers employed but has also hired additional employees as demand for the company’s products has increased these past few months. Part of Savannah Global’s recent success is due to the funds that the company received through the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), which is a program designed to provide financial assistance to small businesses to keep their staff on the payroll during the economic challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

After seeing what Savannah Global Solutions is making happen in Bryan County and across the globe, Congressman Carter said, “Small businesses are the backbone of our economy, and companies like Savannah Global Solutions show the impact they can have. Unfortunately, many of our small businesses have been negatively impacted due to no fault of their own during the COVID-19 pandemic. The PPP was designed to help people like Mark and Trudy keep their businesses open and their workers employed. It was great to have a chance to meet them, learn about the important work they do, and see how the PPP is directly helping small businesses in the First District.”

When the company was established in Savannah in 1987, it was known as Savannah® Forestry Equipment, Inc. It is now known domestically as Savannah Global Solutions, and around the world as Savannah Agro-Forestry Solutions. With innovative and durable technology, Savannah Global Solutions can provide an exceptionally productive land development product line-up to address challenging soil and site preparation needs in forestry and agriculture. The company’s patented Savannah® Stump Jump™ Hydraulic Relief System is incorporated in many of the company’s broad range of equipment, providing superior durability and results in projects in over 35 countries on six continents.

Mark Sauer was grateful for the opportunity to show the company’s products and facility to Congressman Carter. After the visit, Mark said, “Trudy and I, along with our team at Savannah Global Solutions, were honored that our United States Congressman, Buddy Carter, took time to come by our manufacturing facility in Pembroke to see how we are doing and seek input about ways in which we feel he can continue to champion the interests of small business in Washington. We were delighted to give him a tour of our manufacturing facility, share news about our expansion into more international markets, update him on some of the innovative, new equipment we have developed that is revolutionizing agroforestry, and to have an opportunity to personally express our appreciation for all he does in support of the interests of small businesses like ours.”
