Undisclosed Industry Planning To Spend $61 Million On New Plant In Hamilton County; Provide 150 Jobs

Wednesday, August 21, 2019

An undisclosed industry plans to spend $61 million on a new facility in Hamilton County and provide 150 jobs, Charles Wood of the Chamber of Commerce told the County Commission on Wednesday.

Mr. Wood said the state has changed its procedure so that economic development cases involving government grants come first to the counties.

However, he said the name of the company is not released until it gets to the state level.

The new plant will not be at the Enterprise South Industrial Park, he said.

He said the announcement should come within 30-60 days. Construction will take about a year.

Mr. Wood said the facility will offer a mix of jobs, including engineers making $60,000 to $70,000 or as high as six figures in some cases. He said there will also be production jobs in the range of $14 per hour.
