Dynamix Casting Fluxes will invest $7.5 million to establish a new production facility in Huntingdon, Tennessee.
The company Casting Fluxes manufactures granular fluxes used to optimize lubrication and heat transfer in the continuous casting of steel. The company uses data science and analytics to determine the best formula for the customer’s process. It then manufactures products to precise standards. These data-driven fluxes are needed for advancements in steel grades and casting productivity.
Construction is underway on the company’s new 20,000-square-foot facility in the Huntingdon Industrial Park. Dynamix Casting Fluxes anticipates startup of the plant in the second quarter of 2020. The company plans to hire engineers, data scientists and production workers.
“The Huntingdon, Carroll County and State of Tennessee leadership’s commitment to our success has exceeded our expectations. To go from concept to the completion of our facility in little over a year is truly remarkable. They knew speed to market was important for us, and they delivered,” Dynamix Casting Fluxes CEO J. Michael Kiss said.
“Tennessee’s rural communities remain a priority of mine, and it is critically important for us to attract investment and expand economic prosperity in places like Carroll County. I’m pleased to see Dynamix Casting Fluxes invest in Huntingdon and create quality job opportunities for our residents in Northwest Tennessee,” said Governor Bill Lee.
“Dynamix Casting Fluxes’s decision to locate this highly technical and specialized operation in Tennessee is a tremendous display of confidence in Carroll County and its workforce. We welcome the cutting-edge advanced manufacturing jobs that this investment will create in Huntingdon,” noted TNECD Commissioner Bob Rolfe.
