Allied Mineral Products Expands Pell, Alabama, Operations

Allied Mineral Products, a manufacturer of monolithic refractory ceramics and precast shapes, plans to expand operations in Pell City, Alabama. The $23.5 million project is expected to create 13 jobs.

The investment will include a new 200,000-square-foot production facility on the company’s site at 308 Truss Ferry Road. Construction is scheduled for completion in late 2025.

“Our partnership with Alabama is strengthened yet again with the expansion of this plant which we built in 2019,” said Paul Jamieson, president and CEO of Allied Mineral Products. “Our theme for this event is ‘Growth Propels Us.’ This is true for Allied globally, but nowhere more apparent than here in Pell City. “Locating our facility in Alabama was part of a long-term strategy to expand our manufacturing presence in the South to be closer to our customers. Because of the quality of this workforce and the local support here, our growth in Alabama has been faster than we planned. We are excited to be expanding our facility so soon and are confident this will help us to continue that growth.”

Allied Mineral Products services the foundry, aluminum, steel, heat treat/forge and industrial markets. The company’s product line includes innovative refractory technology and longstanding refractory alternatives. Allied currently operates manufacturing facilities in Alabama, Texas, and Ohio, as well as Canada, South America, Europe, India, China and South Africa.

“Since its founding over 60 years ago, Allied Mineral Products has grown into a global company, serving multiple industries and registering sales to more than 100 countries,” Alabama Commerce Secretary Ellen McNair noted. “With a worldwide presence, the company could have selected another location for this investment, so this expansion in Pell City is truly a testament to the workforce there.”
