Skyline Steel Expanding Iuka, Mississippi, Steel Plant
The company’s Iuka location currently manufactures large diameter spiral-welded pipe for foundations, bridges, wharves, piers and more. The expansion involves the addition of new equipment, enabling the company to produce straight-seam electric resistance welded pipe for the same purposes.
“Skyline Steel is appreciative of the continued support from Tishomingo County Development Foundation, the Yellow Creek Port Authority, the Tishomingo County Board of Supervisors, Tennessee Valley Authority, Northeast Mississippi Community College and Mississippi Development Authority. All have played a part in the success of our company over the past 10 years,” said Skyline Steel Iuka General Manager Marty Hall.
As an incentive, MDA provided assistance for the relocation and installation of equipment.
“Mississippi’s existing businesses, like Skyline Steel, are at the core of the state’s economy. When they grow and create new jobs for the state’s workforce, they are not only investing in their business but strengthening the local community and economy,” Governor Phil Bryant said.
“MDA is glad to support Skyline Steel as the company increases is product line in Tishomingo County and creates new career opportunities for the people of Northeast Mississippi,” said MDA Executive Director Glenn McCullough, Jr. “We appreciate the teamwork of all of our economic development partners, which assisted Skyline Steel with this expansion.”
