Elmore County project positions GKN Aerospace for growth

TALLASSEE, Alabama — A new economic development-focused alliance in Elmore County is funding the construction of a $700,000 warehouse facility that will permit the county’s largest manufacturer, GKN Aerospace, to open up critical manufacturing floor space for new projects.

The 20,000-square-foot storage depot in Tallassee is the first project launched by the Elmore County Industrial Development Authority, a strategic alliance that links the county’s primary economic development agency with key community governments to create a single entity to advance industrial projects.

“GKN is proud of our industrial partnership with Elmore County,” said Matt Burke, vice president and general manager of the GKN Aerospace Tallassee facility. “This project will allow us to advance the capability of our facility and foster our relationship in the community.”
