Andalusia supports a strong manufacturing base, with national players like Shaw Industries (carpet yarns) employing more than 1,000 workers here.
Other companies include Couch Inc. (concrete products), Paris Packaging Co. (folding product packaging and display cards), Southeast Alabama Gas District, and Alabama Electric Cooperative.
A 200-acre industrial park offers room for more entrepreneurs seeking a skilled workforce, professional economic development plans and a well-rounded lifestyle. The Andalusia-Opp Airport property includes space for manufacturers to set up shop as well.
Andalusia is also a retail hub, supporting numerous department stores, pharmacies, fast-food chains and privately owned stores and restaurants. Agriculture – particularly peanuts, pecans, fruits, vegetables, cattle, poultry, hogs, cotton, wheat and soybeans – accounts for 38 percent of our county’s revenue.
