Forrest City is experiencing a period of growth following several years of planning, building, and refocusing our industrial recruitment efforts. A team of both public and private partners worked for years to create the right environment for companies seeking competitive workforce training, prime logistical real estate, and low utility rates; and those efforts are beginning to pay off.
Following the community's support of an incentives sales-tax for job-producing industrial projects, Justin Reeves was hired to represent Forrest City and St. Francis County to our industrial prospects.
Your chamber's board of directors remain committed to finding the right companies for our workforce, and the right tools for our existing industries. Our efforts will continue to focus on economic and community development to help enhance our members', and their customers', quality of life.
