Site selection professionals surveyed by national publication Area Development once again ranked Alabama in the top five states for doing business, citing its strong labor climate and workforce development programs.
Alabama ranked No. 5 in Area Development’s 2015 “Top States For Doing Business” analysis, appearing this week online. It’s the sixth consecutive year that Alabama has placed in the overall top 5 in the publication’s rankings.
“The fact that Alabama is consistently getting high marks from site selection consultants indicates that the state is viewed as a prime location for expansion opportunities,” said Greg Canfield, secretary of the Alabama Department of Commerce.
“The results reflect the strength of Alabama’s skilled workforce and our training programs, as well as a favorable business environment that companies from around the world are seeking.”
