The numbers are impressive: 568 companies expanded or located in Alabama last year.
Nearly 25-thousand jobs resulted.
Alabama's Development Office rightfully earned the honor of being the nation's best by an industry publication.
They certainly have help.
Montgomery's Chamber of Commerce in particular has done a terrific job in job recruitment and retention.
Our people, our work force and our natural resources help sell our state.
A political climate favoring business development helps.
So does momentum.
Attracting businesses makes others take notice.
Nearly a dozen more businesses with the potential to create more than 500 jobs each are being worked on now.

Congratulations to all who have worked so hard over the past several years to put Alabama in this position to be the best.
