MollerTech project shows momentum for rural development (video)

WOODSTOCK, Alabama – Global auto supplier MollerTech on Tuesday officially launched work on a $46.3 million manufacturing facility near this tiny Bibb County community, a project that will create more than 220 jobs and spur growth in this rural region.

MollerTech’s selection of the Bibb County site also shows that Alabama’s rural areas are now better positioned to compete for new capital investment and jobs, according to Greg Canfield, secretary of the Alabama Department of Commerce.

“Not too long ago, conventional wisdom said large companies with big projects aren’t going to go to rural settings,” Canfield said after a groundbreaking ceremony for MollerTech on Tuesday afternoon. “That’s not true any more.”
