Industrial Development

Limestone County is the 3rd fastest growing county in Alabama, 65th in the United States, and is situated at the crossroads of technology and innovation. A highly-educated workforce and attractive business incentives fuel industry growth in multiple sectors.

Since Limestone County is a short drive to Redstone Arsenal, NASA, and Cummings Research Park in Huntsville, many county residents are employed by the Army, NASA, and private high-tech companies. Local companies in Limestone County also supply contract work for the space and defense industries.

At the Welcome Center on I-65, an Army missile stands as evidence of the strong connection between Limestone County and the defense and space programs. In addition, the county is home to a TVA Nuclear Plant, Federal-Mogul, Steelcase, and numerous other businesses and industries, including aerospace, advanced manufacturing, automotive, biotechnology, and robotics.

A central location on Interstate 65 places the county less than 100 miles from Birmingham, Alabama and Nashville, Tennessee; a convenient location that connects products made in Limestone County to the region, country, and world.
