Jackson County Industrial Development Corp. always has measured a successful year as one in which existing or new industries promise to spend at least $50 million adding manufacturing space and equipment.

By that measure, the county has fared well the past four years as promised investment has grown from $66 million in 2010 to a record $177 million this year.

Promised investment is the amount new or existing companies say they plan to invest in manufacturing space and equipment in an area over a given period. In this case, that’s generally from Dec. 1 to Nov. 30 of each year, said Jim Plump, executive director of Jackson County Industrial Development Corp.
