Airport Development

Our location in the Southeast, in the center of a triangle made up of Memphis, Nashville, and Birmingham, makes us convenient to one of the fasting growing areas of the country.

The State sponsors the Alabama Industrial Development Training (AIDT) program which designs and implements a client approved training curriculum at no cost to the new or expanding company. The training program can be operated on-site or at a company approved alternate facility. The AIDT program provides state-of-the-art services, including SPC and ISO 9000 certification workshops for the manufacturing client.

Locally, the University of North Alabama and Northwest-Shoals Community College are available to provide specialized training for persons whose skills may require upgrading. Both institutions have a proven track record in meeting the training needs of the manufacturing community.
