Air Performance Plans Manufacturing Complex in Geneva County, Alabama

08/04/2017
Air Performance, which fabricates a wide range of custom architectural products, will invest more than $1 million to double the size of its manufacturing plant in Geneva County, Alabama.

The company’s new 40,000-square-foot manufacturing facility will be the first building constructed in the 90-acre Geneva County Industrial Park since 2003. The park is located off Alabama Highway 167 in Hartford, which has a population of 2,600.

Air Performance now operates a 40,000-square-foot manufacturing site in Hartford, which employs a majority of the company’s 70 workers. The state-of-the-art facility utilizes modern CNC fabrication technology to produce commercial louvers, sunshades and specialized aluminum products for major building projects.

“This expansion sets our company up to continue growing,” said David Bearden, President & CEO of Air Performance. “We have a great team and first-class workforce.”

Bearden said the expansion is being made possible by support from Alabama Governor Kay Ivey, Hartford Mayor Jeff Sorrells, state Rep. Donnie Chesteen, and Wiregrass Economic Development Corp. (WEDC) Executive Director Jonathan Tullos. Vince Perez, a project manager at the Alabama Department of Commerce, was also involved in the project.

“Air Performance’s expansion project in Geneva County makes a strong statement about the pro-business environment we have in Alabama,” Governor Kay Ivey said. “We welcome the new jobs being created by the company’s investment, which tells the world that Alabama is open for business.”

“We are excited about the opportunities this expansion will bring to the City of Hartford and to Geneva County,” Mayor Sorrells said. “We hope that this expansion continues to build a solid foundation for Air Performance and the industrial park.

“I want people to know that Hartford and Geneva County are pro-job and pro-business,” he added.
