Downtown Birmingham has historic beauty, excellent dining choices, and one-of-a-kind retail shops.

GOOD NEWS : When a company grows rapidly and needs to choose a new location to manufacture its product or provide services, having a building ‘ready’ is a tremendous advantage in the site selection process because it reduces or eliminates many of the unknowns associated with construction timelines. The initial 168,000 square foot, Class A warehouse and manufacturing spec building (Building 100), part of a multi-phase project, helped make the site selection process more efficient.
REAL Park, located near the interstate, has a capacity to eventually expand into 6 million square feet. As qualified companies such as Trendco USA lease within the park, the long-term economic benefits for Macon County and our entire state will be profound.

Last Thursday, we buried Tim’s daddy, Ray Wadsworth. A World War Two veteran, family man, businessman, and lifelong member of the Arley community, Ray touched the hearts of many during his 95 years. Tim and I want to thank everyone who has reached out with calls and messages to express their condolences. We can only imagine how the Lord looked at his father and said about his life well-lived: “Well done, good and faithful servant.”
