Covington County, AL, becomes a GLSI Elite Location

Global Site Location Industries (GSLI), a leading site selection and economic development consulting firm, is pleased to welcome Covington County, Alabama, to the GSLI Elite family. Through the lead generation partnership, GSLI will assist Covington County in developing relationships with site location decision-makers from companies planning facility expansions or relocations.

“Covington County is an ideal place for business,” said Rick Clifton, President and CEO of the Covington County Economic Development Commission. “More than an outstanding place to live, we’re a business-friendly community on a whole new level. We know that speed-to-market is the key to success, so we offer permitting in 2-3 days, not weeks or months. Our region is home to thousands of skilled workers. Plus we have a low cost of living making Covington County attractive to people looking to relocate to a great new home.”

GSLI Elite Cities are hand-picked for exhibiting a commitment to economic development, a motivation to be the best places in the country to locate a business, and willingness to work closely with all the principals in an economic development project to create all-around wins. Covington County joins an exceptional group of locations that meet the GSLI criteria and have been chosen to be GSLI Elite Cities.

GSLI will focus its efforts on targeted expansion projects and developing relationships with key decision-makers through aggressive outreach on Covington County’s behalf. “There’s ‘business-friendly,’ then there’s Covington County, Alabama,” said Eric Kleinsorge, CEO of GSLI. “They move at lightning speed to ensure that the companies in their region can get ahead of market forces and deliver goods and services faster. First to market will invariably garner the lion’s share of the sales; Covington County adds that power to every company in their region.”
