Business & Industry

The downtown area of Childersburg is getting a face-lift. The Chamber's Retail Development Task Force constructed a plan to revitalize the downtown area in both looks and business. The D.R.E.A.M. Program (Downtown Revitalization Enrichment and Marketing Program) is working to bring back the luster of the downtown and build area businesses. Some business like The Print Shop, Taylor’s Cleaners and J&J Drugs have been around for decades and serve as a testament of long-time success.

The addition of a large industrial park, located on Alabama Highway 235, will bolster the already flourishing industry in Childersburg. The Nippon Oil company has joined the park, bringing with it a history that began in the 1800s and has become an industry leader in private oil. Hawk Plastics resides nearby with a solid foundation in the area that goes back over twenty years. Bowater Incorporated is an international company employing almost 8,000 people in its numerous facilities.

AbitibiBowater is a global company producing a broad range of forest products marketed in more than 80 countries around the world. It is among the largest recyclers of newspapers and magazines in the world. Locally, the Coosa Pines Operations began in 1949 and today produces approximately 349,000 tonnes of 100% recycled newsprint and 286,000 tonnes of kraft fluff pulp annually, which are sold world wide.
