The Shoals area is characterized by a can-do attitude among local leaders in industry, business, and government, which has led to a business climate where companies can be successful.

We are proud of the wide range of existing industry that calls The Shoals home. From small manufacturers to larger industries, The Shoals community works hard to meet the needs of its local companies.

The favorable tax environment, reliable energy, available local training resources, competitive wage rates, and a skilled local workforce enable a company to operate profitably in Northwest Alabama. But, don’t take our word for it; see what executives of several major companies said regarding their decision to locate or expand in The Shoals.

We would welcome an opportunity to showcase the many amenities our area has to offer and feel confident that Project will gain a full understanding of how the community’s leadership will support a decision to locate in The Shoals.
