Sunbelt Solomon Services Plans Elba, Alabama, Manufacturing Plant

Sunbelt Solomon Services, a provider of commercial and industrial electrical distribution equipment, plans to open a manufacturing facility in Elba, Alabama. The $5 million project is expected to create 50 jobs in Coffee County.

The company will locate in an existing building at 2450 Industrial Boulevard where it will repair and recycle electrical transformers. Operations are scheduled for June 2023.

“Elba is the first greenfield facility we’ve built in several years, reaffirming our strategy of getting closer to our customer base while developing the human capital wherever we operate,” CEO Gus Cedeño said. “Sunbelt Solomon is excited to provide new, well-paying jobs and career paths to the Elba community while continuing the growth and expansion of our business. We are committed to an excellent customer experience, and expanding our footprint in Alabama brings us closer to many of our valuable customers, increasing our ability to provide fast and dependable services.”

Sunbelt Solomon specializes in providing sustainable power solutions for the utility, data center, renewable energy, oil and gas, and mining industries. The company was formed in 2019 after a merger between Solomon Corp. and Sunbelt Transformer.

“Growing companies like Sunbelt Solomon are discovering that Alabama offers abundant opportunities that will help them expand the scope of their operations,” noted Greg Canfield, Secretary of the Alabama Department of Commerce. “I look forward to seeing Sunbelt Solomon put down roots in Elba and watching this operation thrive.”

“The new jobs, new capital investment and new energy provided by Sunbelt Solomon are all incredibly important and attractive for Elba citizens But, I believe the most important and welcome attribute that Sunbelt Solomon brings to Elba is its tremendous corporate culture, as exhibited throughout this process,” added Jesse Quillen, executive director of the Wiregrass Economic Development Corporation. “Sunbelt Solomon’s corporate culture will be a perfect fit in Elba.”
