Visionary industrial park spurs 1,300 new jobs in rural Bibb County

WOODSTOCK, Alabama – Bibb County is adding hundreds of new jobs, significant capital investment and next-generation automotive industry technology, thanks to the vision of a local timber magnate.

More than a decade ago, Scott G. Davis began working to build the 564-acre industrial park near Woodstock that now bears his name. What was once hilly forest and hunting land today is home to major corporations that plan to spend $614 million and create nearly 1,300 jobs at the site.

Davis, founder of Scott Davis Chip Co., Scott Davis Timber Co., and other businesses, was an entrepreneur and philanthropist in the Centreville and Brent communities, and also was involved in a wide range of development projects throughout central Alabama.

He believed rural Bibb County should capitalize on its proximity to the Mercedes-Benz U.S. International auto plant in neighboring Tuscaloosa County, and he developed a large tract of land that had been used for skeet shooting, sporting clays and hunting.
