Germany-Based INTOCAST Plans Huntingdon, Tennessee, Operations

Germany-based INTOCAST, a company that specializes in manufacturing and marketing refractory products for the iron and steel industries, plans to establish its first U.S. operation in Huntingdon, Tennessee. The $15 project is expected to create 100 jobs in Carroll County.

The new facility, located at the Huntingdon Industrial Park South, will produce magnesia-carbon (MgO-C) refractories and materials.

“We are not just building a new plant; we are forging a new chapter for INTOCAST in American steelmaking. Our new American mega class factory will not only provide our customers with access to the highest quality refractories and on-site services available but will also bring jobs and economic growth to the region,” INTOCAST AG CEO Matthias Normann said.

INTOCAST is one of the few companies to manufacture and market shaped and unshaped refractory products, casting auxiliaries as well as metallurgical slag additives. The company currently has a network of 12 German and 17 foreign sites.

“We realize INTOCAST could have chosen anywhere across the U.S. to expand, and we appreciate this company’s investment in Tennessee. Our state’s central location, exceptional workforce and low cost of doing business will provide INTOCAST much success in the years to come,” TNECD Commissioner Stuart C. McWhorter noted.

“TVA and Carroll County Electric Department congratulate INTOCAST on its decision to establish operations in Carroll County. Helping to attract and retain quality jobs and investment to the region is fundamental to TVA’s mission of service. We are proud to partner with the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development, Carroll County Chamber of Commerce, City of Huntingdon, and Carroll County to further that mission and look forward to INTOCAST’s future business success,” John Bradley, TVA senior vice president of economic development added.
