June 2021 Group Watch: Alabama Wins Gold Shovel Award

Area Development, a prominent national business publication, has selected Alabama for its Gold Shovel Award, recognizing the state’s economic development success in the manufacturing sector during a challenging 2020. The honor follows a year of strong results for Alabama, with companies announcing new facilities and expansion projects involving nearly $5 billion in new capital investment despite uncertain global business conditions. The Gold Shovel award is a testament to Alabama’s skilled workforce and to the pro-business environment that makes the state such an attractive location for investment.  Alabama has been a frequent winner since the magazine launched the awards in 2006, when it also won a Gold Shovel. The state also claimed the award in 2013 and in 2019. This is the second GoldShovel Award that Alabama has earned during Governor Ivey’s tenure.
