JCDA submitted a proposal in response to Rockwool’s site selection consultant Request for Proposals (RFP)

Fall 2016The Rockwool project began in the fall of 2016 when the Jefferson County Development Authority responded to Deloitte Consulting who is a site selection consultant. Deloitte was working on behalf of a confidential client (at the time) that was seeking to identify a community and a site to support a new state-of-the-art heavy manufacturing facility for consumer and industrial projects. Deloitte’s client (Rockwool) was planning to locate an operation that will require up to 150 full time employees and a capital investment of over $140 million, with the potential for future expansion investments and additional labor needs.  The Jefferson County Development Authority responded to the proposal with a couple of sites – including the site in Ranson.
