Creating and retaining jobs is at the heart of the mission of the Montgomery Area Chamber of Commerce. 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 10,500 jobs in the region’s economy since 2010.
In the 2016 New and Expanded Industries Report released by the Alabama Department of Commerce, Montgomery led every other county in the state for announced jobs by new and expanding industries.
In 2017, Montgomery announced 1,056 jobs, 30 new and expanded companies, and a capital investment of $204.9 million.
