Community Center

The beautiful Community Center can be rented by members for a discounted rate.  It can be used for a variety of functions including meetings, parties, showers, and receptions.

Welcome to Southwest Mobile County Chamber of Commerce where business is booming. Centered on the I-10 corridor, our area businesses are growing, expanding, and thriving; and new companies keep coming. Southwest Mobile County has a diverse economy focused on distribution, industrial, and transportation companies.

Only about ten miles from Brookley Aeroplex, the Port of Mobile, and downtown Mobile, Southwest Mobile County boasts enviable access to transportation. Interstate 10 connects us to both the East and West coasts and Interstate 65 begins here opening to the Midwest. Rail service is abundant and available. The Theodore Industrial Canal offers access to barges and ocean-going vessels. You can get everywhere from here!

We are home to the newest 2.6 million square foot Walmart Distribution Center, an Amazon Sortation Center, and a regional hub for FEDEX. With an expanding container terminal, more distribution and import/export companies are looking to locate here. Moving all that inventory requires lots of trucks, so trucking and truck support companies are expanding, and new ones are rolling in.

Anchored by global giants Evonik and Shell, our Petro-chemical sector is robust and growing. TechnipFMC is a global oil and gas company providing complete project life cycle services for the energy industry with a huge spool base on the Theodore Industrial Canal. Aker Solutions manufactures most of the world’s offshore umbilical right here in Mobile. Theodore Industrial Canal is also home to several global aggregate companies. And the canal has room for more.
