‘Retooled’ Marshall County manufacturing base charts new era

GUNTERSVILLE, Alabama – Marshall County has a long history of successful manufacturing operations, and that legacy is helping to shape its future.

Several of the northeastern Alabama county’s newer industrial residents have transformed buildings that were operated for decades by companies from another era.

For example, the former Accutek electronics factory in Arab is now the new wheel bearing facility for Progress Rail, which created 100 jobs at the site. And Albertville Quality Foods today employs 400 people in the former Arrow shirt factory in Albertville, following a renovation there.

Meanwhile, suppliers for Honda’s Alabama auto assembly plant have filled in vacancies left in Marshall County by the decline of domestic textile operations. HFI made over the Wrangler building in Arab, and TS Tech brought new life to the Lee Apparel facility in Boaz.
