Made in The Shoals Campaign

The existing industries and businesses of The Shoals area have built our community into a place we are all proud to call home. The "Made in The Shoals" campaign is specifically designed to showcase the companies, products, services, and accomplishments of our area's industries while introducing the rest of the world to what The Shoals business community has to offer.

By participating in the "Made in The Shoals" campaign, your company will proudly proclaim its roots. Your employees will know that you are proud of the job they do and you will be creating greater awareness of The Shoals as a dynamic and progressive economic region that's ready to "do business."

It's So Easy
Participating in the "Made in The Shoals" campaign couldn't be easier. All you do is use the "Made in The Shoals" logo in ways and places that make sense for your business. Here's an example of what one local company has done.

The first group to use the "Made in The Shoals" logo was the Shoals Commercial Culinary Center. A satellite operation of the Shoals Entrepreneurial Center, the Culinary Center is designed to foster entrepreneurship in the food industry. The Culinary Center's clients proudly display the "Made in The Shoals" labels on their products that are shipped throughout the United States.

Digital files of the logo in color and black-and-white are available via email or on CD at no charge. Simply contact SEDA at 256-764-0351 to request the "Made in The Shoals" logo or email us and tell us what file format (.eps, .tif, .jpg, etc.) you need. Or, put us in touch with a vendor, and the logo can be provided directly.

Let them know --- It's "Made in The Shoals."
