Dadeville Pole to Manufacture & Distribute Power Poles in Tallapoosa County, Alabama
The company will make a $5 million investment in the property with plans to construct a facility to produce power poles, pilings and related products for utility suppliers and other entities, according to the Lake Martin Area Economic Development Alliance.
Dadeville will initially create 12 direct jobs to operate the mill and dry kilns, as well as sustaining and promoting numerous indirect jobs with local wood suppliers and loggers. With construction on the new building beginning in late September, the facility will be in full operation by the end of 2020.
“You can tell that the economic development office surrounds themselves with a great team, they were able to pull all the players to the table, the County Engineer’s office, the Commissioners, Alabama Power, the City of Dadeville, no matter what our questions were, the EDA team was able to find an answer for us,” said Mark Byal, General Manager, Dadeville Pole.
“We are excited to add Dadeville Pole to our industrial base and look forward to a long-term partnership ensuring their success,” Lake Martin Area Economic Development Alliance Executive Director Chad Odom noted.
A subsidiary of Alabama-based Ziebach & Webb Timber Co., the company signed an agreement to acquire 23 acres in the Thweatt Industrial Park.
“This announcement is not only a great opportunity for job expansion in our area, but also demonstrates that the Thweatt Industrial Park was and is a wise investment for the City of Dadeville and Tallapoosa County,” Odom added.
