{}{}{} Local businessman, Mark McClanahan is starting up the plant and will become the first to do so inside Fayette's new 180,000 square feet incubator.{} "We don't have any contracts, rather purchase orders and places like Mercedes were initiators and said please come, so now we're here."

{}{} The company has hired six workers to begin with but plans to hire a total 50 employees over the next two years.

{}{}{} While its a small start-up, the 50 new jobs are huge for rural Fayette. "50 jobs for Fayette are like a thousand jobs for mobile because that's 50 families that will be fed," said Governor Robert Bentley
