Steel supplier Quality Iron Fabricators is expanding operations with a 90,000-square-foot addition in Houston, Mississippi. The project represents a $4.9 million corporate investment and will create 50 jobs in Chickasaw County.
“We at Quality Iron are very excited to be expanding our operations in Houston, Mississippi. Through the site selection process, we have been encouraged by the warm reception that our project has received from the state and local business development partners,” said Quality Iron Fabricators President Brian Eason. “We look forward to this and future expansions in this community.”
Mississippi Development Authority provided assistance in support of the project for site preparation and equipment relocation.
“The Mississippi Development Authority proudly supports our existing industries, such as Quality Iron Fabricators, as they grow, creating more and better career opportunities for Mississippians throughout our state,” said MDA Executive Director Glenn McCullough. “We thank our economic development partners at Three Rivers Planning and Development District, the Chickasaw County Board of Supervisors, the mayor of Houston and the Houston Board of Aldermen for their commitment to helping ensure Quality Iron Fabricators’ long-term growth and success in North Mississippi.”
“I appreciate the team at Quality Iron Fabricators for placing its confidence in Mississippi’s business climate and for creating new job opportunities for the residents of Chickasaw County and the surrounding areas,” said Governor Phil Bryant. “Our state is a great place to do business, and companies of all sizes recognize the advantages of a Mississippi location. I congratulate Quality Iron Fabricators on this expansion and wish the company many more years of success in Mississippi.”
