300 Tech Jobs Coming To Rural Alabama Community

As reported by WKRG News, Provalus, a software development company, is opening a $6.5 million dollar facility in Brewton, Al.

Gov. Kay Ivey was at the groundbreaking ceremony for the new 60-thousand square feet facility. “It’s a great day for Alabama, especially here in Brewton,” said Gov. Ivey. “Provalus has the uniqueness where part of its mission is to provide jobs to rural Alabamians. And that means a lot to us.”

According to Provalus, the site, which rests on the old Dogwood Hills Golf Course, will take between 3-5 years to complete. Once finished, the campus will consist of three newly constructed buildings.

Executive Director of the Coastal Gateway Economic Alliance, Will Ruzic, expressed his enthusiasm for the new project by saying, “I was absolutely shocked, and we just cannot believe the opportunity which has presented its self.”

While currently plans only provide for the Provalus facility, Ruzic believes other businesses might follow the tech company to Brewton.
