Existing Industry Support

The Montgomery Area Chamber of Commerce’s Existing Industry program is designed to assist local companies with expansion plans and other issues affecting the manufacturing and industrial community in the Montgomery area.

The Chamber strives to foster the health and future growth of the region’s existing industry and manufacturing base by:

  • Conducting a structured visitation program to quantify, measure and positively impact the needs and issues facing Montgomery's existing industry base.  This program may include the participation of local and state elected officials or other appropriate volunteer leadership
  •  Assisting existing industry with expansion plans by providing a conduit to statutory incentives, site location infrastructure, utilities and employee selection and training
  • Conducting sponsored networking and appreciation events including the River Region Existing Industry Appreciation Golf Tournament and Manufacturer's Night at Riverwalk Stadium
  • Producing the annual Manufacturing Directory for the region

For further information about the services of the Existing Industry Program at the Chamber, contact the Corporate Development division at (334) 240-9430.
