Lee County's first prospect in new industrial park

October 18, 2002

Lee County-- Albany business is crossing borders into Lee County. Chem-Nut is signing on to build a new 147,000 square foot facility in Lee County's Industrial Park. The crop chemical distributor has been looking to relocate, needing more space for their growing business. Lee County leaders say they did not pursue Chem-Nut, the company came to them.

Lee Chamber Director Brad Lofton says, "We want to make it perfectly clear that we do not solicit any Dougherty County businesses. We understand the importance of the Dougherty economy on Lee's economy. The success of each are tied together."

Lofton says Lee County does not pursue Dougherty businesses, and does not offer tax incentives for them to move. Chem-Nut employs about 40 people, with annual sales topping more than 150 million dollars.
