“Everyone did a wonderful job working together to achieve this distinguished honor,” Pierce continued. “This designation shows that our community is prepared and committed for future industrial growth.”
AdvantageSite is a teamwork approach between the private sector and state and local governments
geared toward having prepared product and materials ready for industrial prospects. Alabama now has 56 active AdvantageSites in the state.
The program is jointly sponsored by the Alabama Department of Commerce, Alagasco,
Alabama Power Co., the North Alabama Industrial Development Association, PowerSouth Energy Cooperative, and coordinated by the Economic Development Partnership of Alabama. Representa-
tives from each of the entities actively participate in application reviews and on-site visits to prospective AdvantageSite designees.
AdvantageSite is a voluntary industrial site preparedness program created in order to make the state more competitive for companies considering a location in Alabama.
