Largest Employers

May 5, 2013 

With more than 21,000 employees, an annual federal payroll of $1.81 billion and the value of indirect job creation, Robins Air Force Base in Warner Robins is clearly the economic engine driving Middle Georgia.

But among the top midstate employers is a diverse mix that includes school systems and universities, city and county governments, health care systems, distribution centers, aerospace industries and companies that make buses, zippers and snacks.
