The Alabama Department of Commerce recently unveiled a new business-to-business brand for the state: Made In Alabama. The brand launch is backed by the introduction of the MadeInAlabama.com, which tells Alabama’s economic development story through sharable news content.
Current articles featured on the website include an in-depth look at efforts to recruit Airbus suppliers to support the aviation giant’s first U.S. manufacturing plant, set to break ground in Mobile in April; an article about almost-complete Interstate 22 in northwest Alabama and how it is creating opportunity for growth in rural counties; a story and photo gallery about Alabama’s 24-hour Hyundai auto plant; an examination of research activities at Huntsville’s HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology; and even an article about a unique candy manufacturer in Birmingham that is shipping its products to more than 50 countries across the globe.
The Alabama Department of Commerce is responsible for leading and maintaining economic development across the state. Its divisions include business development, small business advocacy, international trade, the Alabama Film Office and AIDT, Alabama’s award-winning workforce training initiative.
