$2 Billion, 6,000 more workers on the way to the Arsenal
The Redstone Arsenal will employ 50,000 people by 2025. That's the latest update from the senior commander on the Army base. That's about 6,000 new jobs to go along with a $2 Billion upgrade in infrastructure.
Lieutenant General Edward Daly made the announcement as part of the "Redstone Update", hosted by the Madison Chamber of Commerce. “My message is simple," says Daly. "Redstone Arsenal is thriving and growing. My wife and I have been at 18 different duty stations and, unequivocally, Redstone Arsenal is the best... and it’s because of the people.”
