Metal processor and distributor, Samuel, Son & Co., Limited will locate its new 105,000 square foot, $32.6 million, manufacturing center in NorthPointe Industrial Park in Columbia, Tennessee. The firm plans to create 42 new jobs in Maury County.
The company offers end-to-end solutions in the distribution, transportation, processing and manufacturing of metals and industrial products. The Columbia location will specialize in metal processing, blanking steel and aluminum coils for supply to the automotive stamping industry. The company has already doubled the size of the facility from its initial discussions with the state and county, adding a state-of-the-art slitting line for steel and aluminum.
“This additional capacity shows our commitment to the automotive market,” Bill Chisholm, the company’s President/CEO said. “Our customers have grown to expect a lot from Samuel. This investment allows us to step up and deliver the service and quality our customers require for their current and future business needs.”
“We have been working very closely with the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development, the Maury County Chamber and Economic Alliance, and the city of Columbia for many months on this project, all of whom have been very helpful in assisting Samuel with site selection as well as introduction to local vendors and the area’s labor force,” Samuel, Son & Co., Limited Project Manager Rob Whitmore said. “The process has been one of high cooperation and collaboration ending in this successful conclusion.”
“Samuel, Son & Co., Limited will be a great addition to Tennessee’s thriving manufacturing sector, and I am certain the company will find a welcoming home in the Columbia business community,” said Community Development Commissioner Bill Hagerty.
