Mayor Bell: Birmingham’s $1 billion year sets stage for growth

Made In Alabama asked Birmingham Mayor William Bell to share his thoughts on the economic development successes recorded by the state’s largest city in 2015 and where Birmingham is headed in the new year.

Here’s what he said.

Q: What are the 2015 highlights for you?

A: The City issued 700 new business licenses in 2015, covering the entire spectrum of small, two- to three-employee businesses to companies hiring hundreds of individuals. Certainly, the Kamtek announcement of a new plant, and the expansion of its existing plant, in the Valley East Industrial Park was very significant as we won that project over several other Southeastern states.
