The EDC toured the the Marine Depot Maintenance Command at the Marine Corps Logistics Base in Albany for this month's #MadeInAlbany campaign.

"This is actually a manufacturing facility that takes the equipment that's used in theater, brings it back completely, rebuilds it and when it leaves it is a totally new vehicle ready to go again," said Jay Smith with the Albany-Dougherty EDC.

Other businesses the EDC has toured include Sunyland Farms, Coats and Clark, Mars Chocolate and Pfizer.
