STEVENSON, Alabama (WDEF) – The state of Alabama is providing the funds to help out a company in Stevenson.

Governor kay Ivey’s office announced the $200,000 grant for Taylor Manufacturing and other nearby businesses.

The money will go towards upgrading Adams Street to the businesses.

“It is always pleasing to see locally owned businesses expand and grow, creating new job opportunities for Alabamians. That is a tribute to the management and employees of Taylor Manufacturing,” Gov. Ivey said. “I am pleased to announce this grant to improve an important road and support job growth in Stevenson.”

Taylor Manufacturing is a metal fabrication business that has 75 employees.

They began working in an abandoned plant and have expanded several times.

But their progress has worn out Adams Street because of the heavy trucks.

The money will be used to reconstruct the 1,700 foot street for better traffic to Taylor and their neighbors.

Taylor hopes to hire another 30 workers in their expansion.
