Cobb said the business of the Pike County Economic Development Corp. has expanded.

“In the recent past, the challenge before the local economic development corporation was to recruit industry. Now, it’s [to recruit] everything.” Cobb said.

The diversity of the industries and businesses represented at the Pike County Industrial Appreciation Event is an indication that Cobb and the board are doing a commendable job of recruitment, said Pike County Commissioner Jimmy Barron. “And, it’s paying off visibly and economically. We appreciate and support their efforts.”
