SAF, a global metals distributor, fabricator, and finisher, is expanding its capacity and capabilities with the opening of a new manufacturing location in Temple, Texas. The project is expected to create 10 jobs with the potential to reach 50 in the coming years.
The 60,000-square-foot facility will specialize in metal fabrication and distribution, including the manufacturing of panel systems and extrusions, sheet distribution, and custom metal fabrication.
"Our new Texas location was chosen for strategic reasons and is part of SAF's ongoing commitment to more efficiently and effectively serve our customers," said Penn McClatchey, CEO of SAF. "We've done business in the Lone Star State and the surrounding region for some time, so it was only natural for us to plant our flag there. With our new facility, we're geographically closer to our customers, which means we can get product to them even more quickly than before."
The new SAF facility is the latest addition to the company's U.S. footprint of facilities in Atlanta and Villa Rica, Georgia; Nashville, Tennessee; Indianapolis, Indiana; and Redding, California.
"We are excited to welcome SAF to Temple, where the company will join a growing roster of manufacturing companies that select Temple for their operations," said Adrian Cannady, president and CEO of Temple Economic Development Corporation.
