Fayette and state officials turned out strong for Monday’s ribbon-cutting for the Fayette Center for Manufacturing and Innovation.

A good-sized crowd showed up to hear remarks from numerous dignitaries, including Mayor Ray Nelson, Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs Director Jim Byard, state Rep. Daniel Boman, state Sen. Roger Bedford, and many others.

The City of Fayette and other key partners, along with support by (ADECA), have created the Fayette Center for Manufacturing and Innovation, a multi-tenant business incubator.

The goal of the Center is to attract, assist, and grow young businesses (entrepreneurs) by providing them with the space they need to operate at affordable rates, as well as professional and technical services to insure not only their survival, but also their long-term success.

The facility is located in the former Delta Building, across from the glove plant, at 1015 Temple Avenue South. The Center is already home to Fayette Fabrication, a start-up business announced in January that provides returnable material handling racks for the automotive industry. The second tenant is the Sipsey Arts Alliance, which is comprised of a variety of local artists who needed a fixed location to create, display, and sell their works.
