Manufacturing Sector


The Huntsville/Madison County manufacturing base is a diverse mix of traditional and technology manufacturers comprising approximately one fifth of the overall local area employment. The manufacturing sector has over 220 companies with 32,000 workers, with many workers being highly trained and skilled to perform technology-based precision manufacturing. The area's strong interstate, rail and air cargo infrastructure make for an ideal manufacturing location. The Port of Huntsville's Huntsville International Airport is home to Foreign Trade Zone #83 and the International Intermodal Center, as well as U.S. Customs. There are also over 30 foreign based companies with manufacturing and business operations in Madison County. The majority of local manufacturing operations are located in one of the area's publicly owned industrial parks with sites and infrastructure currently in place for immediate and future growth.
