Business Climate

Chambers County's location, labor, and lifestyle, along with its proactive leadership, have been the recipe for attracting national and global industrial leaders such as MeadWestvaco, AJIN USA, and Great Lakes Metal Stamping. Today, the Chambers County Development Authority continues to actively recruit automotive suppliers, manufacturers, distribution industries, and other companies who desire the convenience of interstate access combined with affordable, quality living.

I am very impressed by the way the State of Alabama and Chambers County does business compared to Indiana, California, or anywhere else I have ever worked.

– Aaron Wine, Plant Manager of Knauf Insulation, Lanett, AL

The reason Chambers County is a finalist in my project is because of their location and the team they have in place.
