Huntsville, AL – July 18, 2017 – The Hollingsworth Companies broke ground on their sixth industrial building project in SouthPoint Industrial Park, Alabama on July 18th.

The 108,960 SqFt class A steel building, with 32’ clear height and LED lighting is suitable for warehouse or manufacturing space.

Tommy Battle, Mayor of Huntsville stated ”The timeline for industrial development projects is becoming quicker because companies want to be in business as fast as they can. Clearly there is demand in Huntsville for industrial facilities and we are sure that this trend will continue as more businesses learn Huntsville is an ideal location to make them successful. This new facility will be a welcome addition to the available inventory in Huntsville.”

Limestone County Economic Development Association (LCEDA) is very happy to see that the Hollingsworth Companies is adding another building (108,960 sq. ft.) to the SouthPoint Business Park in Huntsville, Limestone County, Alabama.
