Distribution centers are one of the State of Alabama’s foundational business targets, meaning services they provide support a myriad of industries within our state.

Huntsville Community Awareness for Youth (CAFY) is an annual event aimed to familiarize Madison County youth ages 12-18 with the Four Pillars of Success--Health, Careers, Education, and Finances. Dear friends Harry and Erica Hobbs started this initiative eight years ago with a vision and a few hundred people; now the event attracts over 5,000.
This year marks the first year that Calhoun Community College hosted CAFY. Thank you to all who contributed to this event. This is the quality of life that folks have grown to expect - businesses, nonprofits, and local government joining together for the common good. #Our67

Since 1969, Talladega Superspeedway has been a part of Alabama societal and cultural history. The superspeedway generates an economic impact of approximately $400+ million per year for our state, and the venue boosts Alabama tourism and is part of the quality of life that locals expect.
The infield amenities aimed to enhance the fan experience will open in 2019, just in time for the Alabama Bicentennial and 50 years of Talladega Superspeedway.

GOOD NEWS: Through collaboration and leadership, Alabama has fostered an environment conducive for economic growth. Governor Ivey, the Alabama Department of Commerce, and thousands of members of the public and private sector work daily to make Alabama a place where a myriad of industries can grow and prosper.
Economic development is a continuous process of cultivating relationships, investing in human capital, and working with communities to find their hidden talent within. We work together as a team, and ultimately, it is that heart and the quality of life people experience in Alabama that solidifies every project.

At tonight's Northeast Huntsville Civic Association meeting, the Land Trust of North Alabama gave an informative presentation on present and future public parks, greenways, trailways, waterfalls, caves, and more.
As our population grows and we develop land to accommodate various industries and new residents, we can do so responsibly. From a cultural standpoint, it is important that we retain what it means to be Alabama - the land, the nature, the beauty - all of these elements contribute to our quality of life and can be integrated into the city-building process. The Land Trust of North Alabama is dedicated to this mission, and it is refreshing. Keep up the great work, Land Trust. #Our67

Thank you to the Blount County-Oneonta Agri-Business Center for hosting the 2018 Vegetable Festival. We enjoyed interacting with and purchasing fresh fruits and vegetables from local farmers. #FarmingFeedsAlabama #Our67
Airports affect employment directly and indirectly and serve as a catalyst for economic growth due to their capacity to move people and cargo. The economic benefits can only be reaped, however, when airports are maintained (and funded) properly and utilized by consumers, which is why the FAA grants will be such a blessing for our state.
When operated efficiently, smaller, local airports (most of the recipients of the FAA grants), facilitate regional economic development. The grants are aimed to do just that – provide maintenance funds so the airports can maximize efficiency and productivity. Thank you to Senator Shelby and to all of the policymakers who worked on behalf of Alabamians to improve aviation in both urban and rural areas.
Perhaps the best photograph my son and daughter have ever taken together, and still my favorite photograph of all-time -
Additive manufacturing, also known as 3-D printing, refers to the process of building parts through the combination of material, layer-by-layer, from a CAD file. The Emerging Technology Center will allow Carpenter employees to conduct research and development of new alloys and 3-D printed parts that will primarily be utilized within aerospace and energy markets.
Carpenter’s addition to its existing 500,000 square foot facility in Athens (Limestone County) is a testament to north Alabama’s rich technological history and demonstrates confidence in our state’s workforce. Thank you, Carpenter Technology Corporation, for your continued investment in Alabama. #Our67

Teamwork and Heart: It was refreshing to hear Shipt’s CEO Bill Smith share the company’s story of commitment to family, excellence, human capital, and future generations. Smith, originally from Birmingham, brainstormed the idea after a trip to the grocery store with his wife and small children. Smith sought to make the shopping process easier and within three weeks, 1,000 Birmingham residents signed on before he wrote the first lines of Shipt’s code.
The evolution of Project Unicorn (Shipt), a product created as a result of an entrepreneurial spirit, is a testament to our state’s inherent values of family, hard-work, dedication, and persistence. The estimated 881 highly-skilled jobs created over time showcase our state’s positioning as a leader in technology and innovation. Congratulations, Birmingham and Jefferson County, on this win, and thank you to Shipt for choosing to expand your operations within Alabama.
