AZZ Establishes Washington, Missouri, Aluminum Coil Coating Facility

AZZ Inc., the leading independent provider of hot-dip galvanizing and coil coating solutions, plans to establish an aluminum coil coating facility in Washington, Missouri. The $100 million project is expected to create 80 jobs.

The 25-acre facility, located in the new Oldenburg Industrial Park, is scheduled for operations in 2025.

"The addition of the Washington coil coating facility with state-of-the-art equipment and technology will strengthen Precoat's position to effectively serve the growing aluminum market,” said Tom Ferguson, CEO of AZZ Inc. “This project was contemplated in our strategic rationale for acquiring Precoat Metals earlier this year and is a key element of our growth roadmap for the coil coating segment. Aluminum coil coating is an important strategic initiative for AZZ, benefitting from secular sustainability tailwinds.”

AZZ Precoat Metals will benefit from the Missouri Works program, a tool that helps companies expand and retain workers by providing access to capital through withholdings or tax credits for job creation. The company is also receiving assistance from Missouri One Start, a division of the Department of Economic Development. Missouri One Start assists eligible businesses with their recruitment and training needs.

“AZZ Precoat Metals is another example of a great company continuing to grow in Missouri,” noted Maggie Kost, Acting Director of the Department of Economic Development. “We’re grateful for our partners who helped secure this investment and another positive impact for the community and our state.”

AZZ Inc. is a leading provider of galvanizing and a variety of metal coating solutions and coil coating solutions to a broad range of end-markets in North America. Upon completion, the company will operate a network of 14 facilities including 16 coating lines and 19 value-added processing lines.
