Marengo county

The Marengo County Business Development Center is a partnership of three Marengo County entities: the Economic Development Authority, Cooperative Extension Service, and Marengo County Commission. The Center is a rural business incubator serving all of Marengo County and surrounding areas. Located in the former National Guard Armory facilities on Highway 28 in Linden, the Center is open to most business and industry sectors, with specific accommodations for culinary, public safety, and food processing/agricultural based businesses. Office, manufacturing, and warehouse spaces are available through our program and facilities. The full service commercial kitchen, indoor gun range, and dedicated food processing equipment are all a great benefit to those looking for production and service facilities. At the Center, start-up companies can begin and develop into viable corporations. Clients, those off-site needing our assistance, and tenants, our resident companies, receive assistance from the basics of business plan development to resources that can help them grow to their full potential. Our resources here include a partnership with the University of West Alabama’s Small Business Development Center, and our program is an Entrepreneurial Service Organization with the Delta Regional Authority’s Delta Entrepreneurship Network. We partner with all local, state, and federal agencies and companies that can provide business services and assistance. Offices can be leased as furnished or unfurnished, and Internet is available. A Board Room is available for use/lease that will seat 16-30 people with overhead projection; the Conference Room is 5000 square feet of meeting space fully equipped with audio-visual components and seating for 250+ for our programs or for lease by private companies.
