Wednesday, the Elmore County Commission attended a groundbreaking ceremony for the county’s largest manufacturer, GKN Aerospace. GKN has 800 employees in Elmore County and works with companies including Sikorsky, Airbus, Bell Helicopter, HondaJet, GE and Lockheed Martin. Due to the joint efforts of the Elmore County Industrial Development Authority (ECIDA), the City of Tallassee, the Elmore County Economic Development Authority (ECEDA), and the Elmore County Commission, the ECIDA is constructing a $700,000 warehouse facility providing 20,000-sf of floor space for new projects. The County Commission is excited to see this project and others come to Elmore County through the hard work of ECEDA & ECIDA.
