Transformer Manufacturer ERMCO Expands Dyersburg , Tennessee, Plant

A wholly owned subsidiary of Arkansas Electric Cooperatives, ERMCO, Inc. will expand its manufacturing operations in Dyersburg, Tennessee. The transformer manufacturer will invest approximately $12 million and create 150 new jobs in Dyer County.

With all of its products produced in the U.S., ERMCO is one of the largest producers of oil-filled distribution transformers and transformer components in the U.S. The company has been operational in Dyersburg since 1971.

ERMCO is adding to its Dyer County footprint by expanding its operations into a third building to keep up the company’s growing demand. The company will locate its facility in the previous Caterpillar building in Dyersburg and will add an additional 8,000 square feet to the facility.

“Our dedicated workforce in Dyersburg has enabled ERMCO to become the premier distribution transformer manufacturer in the U.S. We have been able to increase our business by over 10 percent for five years in a row. The new factory we are adding to our footprint in Dyersburg will allow us to continue to serve our partners with the short lead times they depend upon. We are very excited about our future,” ERMCO President & CEO Bill Reffert said.

“Tennessee’s strong advanced manufacturing industry, which employs 170,000 Tennesseans, makes it the perfect location for a company like ERMCO to expand operations. I’m pleased that ERMCO sees the advantages of doing business in Dyer County, and I thank them for creating 150 new jobs in Dyersburg,” said Governor Bill Lee.

“I congratulate ERMCO on its decision to expand its operations in Dyersburg. Tennessee continues to see major growth in the manufacturing sector, with Tennessee’s advanced manufacturing job creation far outpacing national growth. I thank ERMCO for continuing to strengthen our advanced manufacturing industry in our state with the creation of these 150 new jobs in Dyersburg,” TNECD Commissioner Bob Rolfe added.
