“At every single stage of this, we really felt we were wanted in Alabama,” Mark Andrews, company Chief Executive Officer said. “We felt we were welcome, which was very important to our decision-making process.” In addition, Andrews said the area’s quality workforce pool and availability of job training were also significant factors in the company remaining in Chambers County.
Valerie Gray, Executive Director of the Chambers County Development Authority, said re-opening of Knauf facility will diversify the area’s manufacturing sector.
“Knauf’s decision to reopen the Lanett facility is a tremendous win for our area and for the State of Alabama on so many levels. This decision speaks volumes of the relationships that we as a county and state have built with the Knauf team,” she said. “I’m proud to know, that when it comes to economic development and a conducive business environment, Knauf knows we can deliver.”
