Governor Robert Bentley released the following statement regarding VF Corporation's plan to build a new distribution facility in Hackleburg. VF Corporation officials informed the Governor this evening of their decision to stay in Hackleburg and rebuild the plant which was destroyed in the April 27 tornados.

“This is a great day for the people of Hackleburg and the State of Alabama,” said Governor Robert Bentley. “The news that Wrangler will rebuild in our state could not have come at a better time as communities across Alabama are rebuilding their lives. Since April 27, I have worked closely with the Vanity Fair team to encourage them to stay in Hackleburg.

This decision is a result of a tremendous team effort involving state and local officials who are committed to putting Alabamians back to work. I want to personally thank VF Corporation CEO Eric Wiseman and let him know that the hard working men and women of Hackleburg look forward to their first day back at the new Wrangler plant.”
