LANETT, Alabama – Building on a solid period of rejuvenation, Alabama’s Chambers County attracted more than $171.3 million in new capital investment last year, spurring the creation of 119 new and future jobs, economic development officials said.
In addition, the Chambers County Development Authority (CCDA) reported that it has developed an active pipeline for 2017. The group says it is now working on 31 projects – 19 industrial, six retail, and six commercial.
During 2016, the CCDA says the east central Alabama county saw continued growth in its broad-based auto supply chain, infrastructure improvements, the development of a new industrial park, and other promising developments. Local schools will see $3 million in new tax revenues from the activity.
