Morgan County is one of the most attractive regional locations for business and industry. We are home to 13 Fortune 500 companies and Site Selection Magazine has recognized our area as a Top 10 community nationally for industry location four out of the past five years. The nearby interstate highway system, Huntsville International Airport (with intermodal system) and the Tennessee River have made Decatur a prime location for business and industry. We have one of the largest barge terminals along the 650-mile Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway, making the city a vital link for goods shipped from the Great Lakes. Also, Decatur is a commerce hub and primary artery for railroads with both CSX Transportation Systems and Norfolk-Southern maintaining rails through the area.
