Valmont Industries Plans Marion County, Tennessee, Production Operations

Valmont Industries, Inc., a supplier of steel poles and structures to utility and transportation markets, plans to expand production operations in Marion County, Tennessee. The $6 million project is expected to create 80 jobs.

The investment will include the replacement of aging infrastructure and building more climate resilience. The facility supplies steel poles and structures to utility and transportation markets nationwide.

“Valmont’s commitment extends beyond expansion; it involves investing $6 million into the future of manufacturing, into communities where we live and work, and investing into the progress of improving everyday life. By fueling the growth of our Tennessee operations, driving customer-focused innovation and nurturing workforce development, we’re not just growing our footprint; together with our valued partners, we’re building opportunities that are sustainable for generations to come,” Bruce Bacon, senior plant manager of Valmont Industries said.

Valmont serves two primary segments — agriculture and infrastructure — and seven markets: Utility, Lighting and Transportation, Telecom, Solar, Coatings, Irrigation and Ag Tech. The company currently operates 84 facilities across six continents.

“As we continue to cultivate opportunities for economic growth and innovation across Tennessee, we are thrilled to announce the expansion of Valmont in Jasper. This company employs more than 11,000 people in 21 countries around the globe, and by choosing to expand in Marion County, it shows that the state is the premier destination for innovative industries to thrive. We look forward to the continued partnership with Valmont as we work together to create more opportunity for Tennesseans in Marion County,” TNECD Commissioner Stuart C. McWhorter noted.
