Peak North America USA, a provider of construction and steel fabrication solutions for the wood products industry, will acquire a local fabrication company and add a new building to the property in Irvington, Alabama. The $24 million project is expected to create 175 jobs over the next four years.

The company plans to build a new facility that will provide equipment and services, with a focus on sawmills, pellet plants and OSB plants. Operations are scheduled to begin in June 2023.

“Peak North America USA is excited at the opportunity to expand its presence to the state of Alabama and specifically to Mobile County. By being strategically located in the southern United States, we will offer state-of-the-art manufacturing and fabrication services related to the forest products sector, while gaining a geographical competitive advantage for our clients,” said Peak North Americas CEO Brian Fehr. “We will create a culture of safety, efficiency, enthusiasm, and inclusivity for all our employees, with the intention of growing operations beyond projected forecasts, and we will use the local workforce and community to do so.”

Peak North America USA provides construction, installation, fabrication, and manufacturing services supporting the forest products industry.

"Peak North America USA has an established track record of innovation within the wood products industry, and I am happy to see a company with this kind of pedigree put down roots in Alabama,” noted Greg Canfield, secretary of the Alabama Department of Commerce. “I’m confident that Peak North America will find an ideal industrial home in Mobile, where it can grow and thrive.”

"This investment will have a significant impact on the Irvington community and the wood products industry as a whole,” added Mobile Chamber President & CEO Bradley Byrne. “We are confident that Peak North America's expertise in creating industrial solutions will make this project a success."
