Columbiad Fabrication and Aviation Expands Puryear, Tennessee, Operations

Columbiad Fabrication and Aviation will expand its manufacturing operations in Henry County, Tennessee. The $4.8 million project is expected to create 144 jobs over the next five years.

The company will purchase a building and relocate its existing operations from Paris to Puryear. The new facility, which has housed Columbiad’s welding work over the past year, will allow operations to be located under one roof, improving production flow and providing additional space for expected growth.

“The State of Tennessee’s investment in Columbiad’s growth and future has afforded us a great opportunity to provide jobs and quality manufacturing to the area. We thank them for their forward vision and commitment in our endeavors,” Johnathan Bailey, vice president, Columbiad Fabrication and Aviation said.

Founded in Paris, Tennessee, Columbiad specializes in precision metal fabrication. The company’s full-fabrication welding team can cut, form and weld parts to send its customers a completed assembly.

“Tennessee’s geographic location, affordable cost of doing business and competitive wages make our state an ideal place for manufacturing companies to locate and grow. We appreciate Columbiad for its $4.8 million investment in Henry County and for its continued partnership with our state,” TNECD Commissioner Bob Rolfe added.
