Local firm is Georgia’s Family Owned Business of the Year
Seimitsu Corp., a Savannah-based IT services provider, has been named Georgia’s Family Owned Business of the Year by the Small Business Administration. The company, which has been operating since 1984, has an office in midtown Savannah and is owned by Seimitsu “Sam” and Cindy Cook. Seimitsu Corp. specializes in tailored business IT solutions, with offerings that include installation and maintenance, infrastructure services, voice solutions and surveillance systems.
The owners say the company’s success can be attributed, in part, to its pursuit of an innovative product line, which includes a recent foray into the installation of fiber cables throughout the metropolitan Savannah area.
Historical Society publishes 100th journal
The Georgia Historical Society, Georgia Historical Quarterly, is celebrating the publication of the journal’s 100th volume.
“For almost 100 years, the GHQ has been front and center in helping Georgians understand our common history as we look toward building the future,” said Dr. W. Todd Groce, president and CEO of the Georgia Historical Society. “It provides a unique platform for the best cutting-edge scholarship on Georgia history and its people, and it continues to play a prominent role in helping GHS fulfill its mission as an educational and research institution.”
First published in March 1917, the Quarterly features the finest scholarly articles on Georgia history, book reviews covering all aspects of southern and Georgia history, edited primary sources, oral histories and essays by and about contemporary history-makers.
In 1999, the GHQ was recognized by the governor of Georgia with a Governor’s Award in the Humanities.
The Georgia Historical Quarterly is received by all members of the Georgia Historical Society, as well as almost 1,000 university, college and public libraries, historical societies, and other educational and governmental institutions across the U.S. and around the world.
