England Industrial Airpark and Community, located northwest of Alexandria, Louisiana, traces its beginnings back to 1939, when it served as an emergency airstrip for Esler Field, the regional airport serving the Central Louisiana area. However, as the possibility of war in Europe increased, the Army Air Corps leased the facility from the City of Alexandria. The airfield was named Alexandria Army Air Base.
Working together, the Central Louisiana community has redeveloped the former military facility into a vibrant multimodal commerce center and community. Located onsite are an international airport, numerous office and warehouse facilities, golf course, hotel and restaurant, day-care center, retirement community, and general housing. With robust air connections, interstate highway connectivity, onsite rail and water access, England Airpark can meet your most demanding transportation needs. An outstanding workforce, great incentives and Foreign Trade Zone availability complete the development package.
