In a sign of its economic development muscle, the Jefferson County Commission recently announced five projects in one day that will create hundreds of high-paying jobs and millions in investments while diversifying the economy across the metro area, according to the commission members.
Agreements were announced this month with Pack Health, a local health care company; Kratos, a national security solutions provider that recently acquired the Southern Research Engineering division; The Bray, a Liberty Park joint venture with the city of Vestavia Hills; Southern Research, a nonprofit scientific research organization; and the Birmingham Business Alliance (BBA)’s Supplier Scale program.
A total investment of $31.8 million is spread across two of the projects. The county is investing $750,000 into the study and project from the Birmingham Business Alliance. Three of the projects will create a projected 401 combined jobs over the next five years.
