Hargett Materials Plans Milan, Tennessee, Production Center

Hargett Materials Inc., a construction materials manufacturing company, will invest $2.2 million to build a new facility and expand operations in Milan, Tennessee. The company plans to hire 50 associates during the next five years.

HMI will expand its operations by constructing a new 100,000-square-foot production facility and rail spur to serve the Milan facility with raw materials and help export finished products nationwide.

“Hargett Materials, Inc. is very excited about the growth of our company here in Milan. We are very appreciative of the help of our local agency involvement, our state government representatives, TVA, and of course the TNECD officials who have made this project possible. It takes a team of good people to succeed, and I am very proud of this team that has worked diligently to help with the funding and execution of a good plan to promote business in our rural communities,” Jon Hargett, president, Hargett Materials, Inc. said.

“Companies invested nearly $3 billion in rural Tennessee communities last year, and we are very proud of that growth especially in the midst of a pandemic. Hargett Materials is a valued partner in Gibson County, and these jobs will provide additional opportunities in Northwest Tennessee,” TNECD Commissioner Bob Rolfe said.

HMI is an industrial aggregates processing company that supplies a wide range of blended sands and cements, concrete cleaners, primers and curing compounds for the concrete industry. In addition, the company manufactures a product called Elephant Armor, a high-performance patch material for asphalt and concrete pavements.

“The Delta Regional Authority’s investment to strengthen Gibson County infrastructure further supports economic growth by providing businesses the capability to expand its operations. The Hargett Materials, Inc. operations expansion is projected to create 50 new jobs, providing more economic opportunities for workers and jobs seekers in Northwest Tennessee,” Chris Caldwell­, federal co-chairman, Delta Regional Authority advised.

Another portion of HMI’s business is supplying components for buildings and data center modules that shield critical infrastructure from Electro Magnetic Pulses. The shielding provides protection for utility companies, defense systems and communications hubs throughout the United States. This expansion project is needed primarily due to an increased demand to protect critical infrastructure systems.
