ColorCoat, Inc. will locate new operations, 129 miles north of Memphis, near the Kentucky border, in South Fulton, Tennessee. The windows and doors coating application company will invest $600,000 and create 80 new jobs in Obion County.
“We are excited about opening the newest branch of ColorCoat Inc. in the state of Tennessee,” ColorCoat, Inc. CEO Mario Bekeris said. “Everyone here has been so welcoming and helpful. We thank you all for your hospitality and look forward to becoming part of the community of South Fulton.”
ColorCoat’s new facility will be used to paint vinyl and fiberglass windows and doors. ColorCoat is the largest third party exterior coatings applicator for the window and door industry in the United States. The 14-year-old company has operations in many states across the U.S.
“I want to thank ColorCoat for choosing to locate its new facility in South Fulton and creating 80 new jobs in Obion County,” said Bob Rolfe, Commissioner of the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development. “This is a big win for South Fulton and the state of Tennessee, and I look forward to our future partnership with ColorCoat and seeing this company grow and succeed in our state.”
“I am excited about the new industry coming to South Fulton,” South Fulton Mayor David Lamb said. “One of my goals when I was elected mayor was to try and bring more industry and retail business to the area so it would provide more badly needed jobs. I hope with ColorCoat’s announcement will come more industry and jobs to South Fulton.”
