A Vital Biz Relocation Program for Times of Need

A business relocation program, headed by the Cullman Area (AL) Chamber of Commerce, is proving to be key in the rebuilding efforts of local businesses hit by tornadoes that swept through in late April this year. In the days following the tornadoes, city and county industrial development boards partnered with the Chamber to get a relocation effort under way. According to the Chamber's president, Kirk Mancer, "We first had to compile a list of what was available in the area. Then we developed the form that would describe such assets as the available utilities, number of offices and parking and other information. Once we knew what businesses were looking for we could turn to the specifications for them to review." Today, more than two months after tornadoes destroyed a wide range of houses and businesses, the program has provided information for nearly 20 businesses and professional offices, and it continues to deliver its value.
