The city of Mobile has made a name for itself over time. Beginning as Alabama’s only port city, Mobile now ships the state’s commercial products 300 years later. Mobile has been under many different influences since its inception, which explains the many diverse characteristics the city possesses. Mobile was founded by the French and formed to be the first capital of Louisiana, before Alabama was even granted statehood! By the 19th century, Mobile was flourishing from trade alongside its port, thus turning the city into a well-established, southeastern powerhouse city linked to a river system. Soon after, Mobile became a commercial city thriving with prosperity. New economic infrastructure was piloted through the city at the turn of the 20th century. This transition brought new industries that created jobs and inspired a significant population increase. Today, Mobile’s population is quickly approaching almost 200,000 residents.

Since the city’s economy boomed in the 19th century, Mobile has not slacked in creating a city of economic opportunity and growth. The city hosts the Mobile Area Chamber of Commerce, which aids in promoting the local area through commercial and business development. Manufacturing, medicine, construction, ship building, steel and aerospace industries are just some of the top-level production industries operating throughout the Mobile area. Alongside its major industry counterparts, Mobile also houses an economic district made up of various local, small businesses and companies. Together, all city industries and companies work toward striving for economic growth and success in their city through local engagement and support.
