May 27, 2021

Lamar Advertising of North Alabama, a Baton Rouge-based company that is one of the largest outdoor advertising companies in the world, began operations on May 25 in a new facility at the Jetplex Industrial Park at Huntsville International Airport.

“We are pleased to announce the newly formed Lamar Advertising of North Alabama, with the merging of the Huntsville and Decatur offices,” said Jeff Handley, Lamar Advertising vice president and general manager of North Alabama. Our Huntsville location was acquired in 1998 which resulted in the Decatur market being split. We are excited about the opportunity to join both operations and are relocating to a spectacular 15,500 sq foot facility in Jetplex Industrial Park which will service 1,774 panels in thirty-nine markets within a seventy-five-mile radius of Huntsville. The new facility will have twenty-four outstanding employees locally based to meet our customers’ ongoing and future business needs.”

“We are pleased to welcome Lamar Advertising of North Alabama as a partner at the Port of Huntsville,” said Rick Tucker, CEO of the Port of Huntsville. We are excited that they have made a commitment to continue serving the North Alabama market by relocating their Decatur and Huntsville facilities in Jetplex Industrial Park. Their combined operations will be in this newly constructed 15,500 sq ft facility and represents over $4.2 million in capital investment. We work to provide our Jetplex Industrial Park tenants more than just a space for business but a helping hand in promoting and maintaining their business through community, regional, and media partnerships that the Port of Huntsville maintains.”
