A company that specializes in millwork, stainless steel, stone and refrigeration products used by the food industry, Sparks Custom Fabrication will expand its manufacturing plant in Adamsville, Tennessee. The company plans to create approximately 140 jobs in McNairy County during the next five years.
SCF opened in Adamsville in 2013 and currently has 120 employees. SCF will add 10,000 square feet of warehouse space to its existing 100,000-square-foot facility.
"This expansion will provide opportunities for SCF to grow our business in the foodservice equipment industry,” SCF President Nathaniel Sparks said. “The company’s growth is a direct result of our employees’ quality and attention to detail for our customers. We thank TNECD and the city of Adamsville for supporting our efforts to hire and train new employees locally with a specific skill set needed to manufacture our custom-made-to-spec products.”
“SCF is a home grown success story that shows why Tennessee is the place to start and grow a business,” Governor Bill Haslam said. “Tennessee’s skilled workforce allows our existing businesses to thrive, especially companies like SFC that have carved out a market for the kinds of well-crafted products that Tennessee is known for around the world. Thank you, SCF, for creating about 140 new jobs in Adamsville and bringing us another step closer to our goal of making Tennessee to No. 1 location in the Southeast for high quality jobs.”
“Manufacturing plays a crucial part of McNairy County’s economy. About 40 manufacturing operations call McNairy County home and they provide jobs for roughly 1,000 residents – jobs that are among the county’s highest paying,” Economic and Community Development Commissioner Randy Boyd said. “An injection of nearly 140 new manufacturing jobs by SCF will be significant and create a considerable long-term boost for McNairy County and its citizens. On behalf of Team Tennessee, I’d like to thank SCF for deciding to double its jobs in Adamsville with this expansion.”
“This is very exciting news for the city of Adamsville and McNairy County. We are so happy to have partnered with TNECD, the city of Adamsville and the Adamsville IDB to help make this expansion happen,” Eddie Crittendon, CEO of the McNairy County Economic Development Council and Chamber of Commerce, said. “We appreciate the investment that SCF is making in our county. We're excited that they put their trust in us and will be members of our industrial family for years to come. We wish them much success going forward.”
