AdvantageSite

advantagesiteAdvantageSite, managed by the Economic Development Partnership of Alabama, is a teamwork approach between the private sector and state and local governments geared toward having prepared product and materials ready for industrial prospects. Alabama currently has 53 active AdvantageSites throughout the state.

The program is jointly sponsored by the Alabama Department of Commerce, Alagasco, Alabama Power Co., the North Alabama Industrial Development Association, PowerSouth Energy Cooperative, and coordinated by the Economic Development Partnership of Alabama. Representatives from each of the entities actively participate in application reviews and on-site visits to prospective AdvantageSite designees.

AdvantageSite is a voluntary industrial site preparedness program created in order to make the state more competitive for companies considering a location in Alabama. Twenty-three projects have located on sites with AdvantageSite designations since the program’s inception in 2008. These projects represent the creation of more than 4,015 jobs and $904.4 million in capital investments.
