Since 2010, Montgomery County has consistently ranked within the top three among all Alabama counties in terms of announced new industry, jobs and/or capital investment. Additionally, the Chamber’s Business Retention and Expansion (BRE) program launched as a result of the Imagine a Greater Montgomery initiative and is directly responsible for securing and growing over 12,000 jobs in the region’s economy since 2010.
In 2019, Montgomery announced 1,222 jobs, 33 new and expanded companies, and a capital investment of more than $1 Billion.
