All rise in Monroe County – Classic American character and the setting for world-class global performance.
We may be south on the Alabama map, but if you want to find the essence of Monroeville and Monroe County, look up.
Look up at city skylines—in Atlanta, for example, where you’ll see buildings constructed with precast concrete systems made right here in Monroe County at Gate Precast, a crucial supporting player in Atlanta’s construction boom.
Birthplace and lifelong hometown of Mockingbird author Harper Lee, Monroeville has been named Alabama’s Literary Capital for its nurturing of notable writers that also include Truman Capote and novelist Mark Childress.
And if literary imaginations take flight here, industry finds an exceptional location for launching success, in a strategic position halfway between the state capital of Montgomery and the global ports of Mobile and the Gulf Coast as well as the industrial assets of the I-10 Aerospace Corridor. Here, manufacturing and distribution operations enjoy superb logistical connections and easy reach to industrial giants like Airbus, AM/NS Calvert, Hyundai and Mercedes Benz.
Raising standards, rising success
Rising to challenges
A lawyer stands up for justice. A writer lives up to her genius. Ascending skylines. Expanded horizons. It’s the power of classic American character. It’s why all rise in Monroe County—people, industry, and prosperity.
Isn’t it time to rise with us?
