GUIN - Economic development officials are continuing to push to attract the automotive industry to Marion County.
“It’s hard to beat our area as a location for automotive,” said Northwest Alabama Economic Development Alliance (EDA) Executive Director David Thornell during the EDA’s annual membership appreciation luncheon on Thursday, July 25, at the Holiday Inn in Guin.
The Northwest Alabama EDA, also known as C3, was formed in 2010 and is a marketing alliance of three counties—Marion, Fayette and Lamar—and certain municipalities within those counties, that markets the region to businesses and industries looking to locate or relocate.
Northwest Alabama EDA is promoting its three-county area to the automotive industry online, at trade shows and conferences with a new branding which it rolled out in November of last year, called “Crossroads of the Alabama South.”
