Gregory Industries Establishes Athens, Alabama, Plant

Steel products manufacturer Gregory Industries will invest $30 million to build a 325,000-square-foot facility in Athens, Alabama. The project is expected to create 100 jobs in Limestone County.

According to company officials, the new location will expand regional manufacturing capability and allow quicker service for customers in the Southeast. Construction on the facility, located in the Elm Industrial Park, is planned to begin next March, with operations beginning next Fall.

“We’re very excited at the prospect of creating more jobs, and more business in North Alabama,” said Gregory Industries CEO Matt Gregory. “We are grateful to the City of Athens and Limestone County for welcoming us and we are looking forward to a long and mutually beneficial partnership.”

Gregory Industries manufactures items related to highway safety such as guard rails along with metal framing channels, tubing and other steel products.

“This is yet another example of our growing and diverse industry base,” added Limestone County Economic Development Association President and CEO Bethany Shockney. “Gregory Industries has been great to work with, and we welcome them to our Limestone County family."
