Promised investment by new and existing industries in Jackson County reached a record $159 million this year.

That record, however, might not stand long, a top economic development official says.

“We know we have some significant investment coming in 2013,” said Jim Plump, executive director of Jackson County Industrial Development Corp. “If companies do what they have planned to do and are talking about right now for 2013, we already have more than $100 million in promised investment.”

Promised investment is the amount new or existing companies have announced they plan to invest in a given period, but sometimes those investments don’t pan out for one reason or another, Plump said.
