Canada-Based Epsilon Industries Plans Tuscaloosa, Alabama, Prefabricated Modular Utility Systems Plant

Canada-based Epsilon Industries, a manufacturer of modular construction systems, plans to establish operations in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. The approximately $3 million project is expected to create 180 jobs.

Located in an existing building in the Tuscaloosa County Airport Industrial Park, the production facility will manufacture prefabricated modular utility systems. Production is scheduled to begin in May.

“We are excited to be a part of the Tuscaloosa community,” said Chris Wiederick, president of Epsilon Industries. “We will be hosting many of our top clientele at our facility, and we feel that Tuscaloosa offers a convenient location with direct access to the airport, as well as a welcoming and entertaining environment.”

AIDT and West Alabama Works will work with the company to develop a workforce development plan to recruit and train team members.

“Companies from all over the world are capitalizing on the growth potential present in the Tuscaloosa area, and for good reason,” noted Greg Canfield, Secretary of the Alabama Department of Commerce. “Epsilon Industries is a welcome addition to Alabama’s business community, and I look forward to seeing how the company’s investment project positively impacts Tuscaloosa’s economy,” he added.

Epsilon designs and manufactures off-site constructed and highly customized packaged central utility units.

“Epsilon Industries’ decision to locate its newest facility in Tuscaloosa highlights all that our community has to offer new and expanding businesses, including a supportive business environment and strong workforce,” added Tuscaloosa County Economic Development Authority Chairman Norman Crow.
