Economic Development

The Cullman Community and Economic Development Agency and Cullman County Economic Development Agency are committed to the growth of Cullman County. With the support of local officials, the City and County Industrial Development Boards, and the Cullman Area Chamber of Commerce, the Agencies work to both attract new business and industry and to assist existing industries with expansions and any other concerns.

 With fully developed industrial parks, free standing sites, numerous transportation arteries, moderately-priced utilities, skilled labor and one of the state's most successful speculative building programs, the two Agencies can help provide new and expanding industry with the tools to succeed.
