IUKA — Ershigs Inc. recently held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for its newest facility. The fifth of Ershigs’ buildings in the Tri-State Commerce Park, the new facility offers 65-foot ceiling, and is designed to manufacture very large fiberglass and composite structures.
Ershigs invested approximately $1.26 million, and Tishomingo County provided $313,799 for the new facility, which will create 52 new jobs.
Ershigs produces fiber-reinforced plastic (FRP) products to the power, chemical, pulp, paper and wastewater industries. Primary products are tanks, ducting, pipe systems and chimney liners, all products normally too large to move by road or rail.
Ershigs site manager Richard Spears said “our location on the Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway and Tennessee River will give us a competitive edge in bidding on large diameter tanks. We are able to ship any size component anywhere in the world by water.”
