Reinforced concrete pipe and precast concrete manufacturer Dunn Utility Products will expand operations in New Albany, Mississippi. The $23.3 million project is expected to create 30 jobs in Union County.
The company is expanding into a 100,000-square-foot shell building which will house two new manufacturing plants to produce concrete pipe and wet cast concrete. In addition Dunn Utility Products also purchased a dirt pad at the site that could accommodate another 100,000 square feet. Ultimately, the building could be expanded to 400,000 square feet.
“We are excited about the growth opportunities and becoming a part of the community in New Albany, Mississippi,” said Dunn Utility Products Vice President and General Manager Mark McCormick. “Our Dunn Family of Businesses have had a presence in Mississippi since 1927. We look forward to continuing our growth in the great State of Mississippi and being a part of the continuing economic growth of our state.”
The Mississippi Development Authority (MDA) is providing assistance for infrastructure improvements in support of the project. Union County and the city of New Albany also are assisting with the project.
Dunn Utility Products is one of five Mississippi companies under the Dunn Family of Businesses. The other companies are MMC Materials, Bayou Concrete, Dunn Road Builders and Huey P. Stockhill, LLC.
