Birmingham based Brasfield & Gorrie has won the contract to build a new USD 18 million Kloeckner Metals steel processing facility near the ThyssenKrupp AG plant north of Mobile.
Mr Steven Manown VP and division manager at Brasfield & Gorrie said that the processing plant will be built on 16 acres in the ThyssenKrupp Industrial Park in Calvert, Brasfield & Gorrie said in a prepared statement. The plant will have a significant economic impact.
He added that "The steel industry has a vital impact on the economy and our community. We are honored to be a part of a project that will provide significant opportunities for the local community."
Mr Kirk Johnson CFO of Kloeckner said that officials with Kloeckner this summer said the 100,000 square foot plant would created 32 jobs in Mobile County over three years and 75 jobs over 10 years. Pay and benefits for workers will total about USD 60,000 a year.
Kloeckner, which employs about 11,400 people worldwide, also operates a processing center on Industrial Boulevard in Bessemer.
