One Wiregrass city is going the extra mile to help one of its employers' to expand operations and create new jobs.
For more than six-decades, Nasco Equipment Company's forklifts have been sold in all 50-states and several foreign nations.
Despite a global economic slowdown, Nasco president, Toyle Jackson, says business remains strong. In fact, the company has outgrown its current production site.
Recently, Elba Mayor James Grimes announced the transfer of city land on Highway 84 to Nasco for a proposed expansion.
The site is the old Dorsey trailers hill site on Highway 84.
Once Nasco moves operations to its new site in Elba, company officials hope to nearly double the monthly employee payroll.
