GRENADA — Officials from Luvata have announced the company will be adding to its production capabilities in Grenada in an effort to capture new opportunities in the marketplace. The addition will take place at the company’s aluminum production plant, which is located in an 180,000-square-foot city-owned building in the Grenada Air Industrial Park.
The project represents a company investment of over $1 million for machinery and equipment at the aluminum plant.
The Mississippi Development Authority (MDA) worked closely with company and local officials to help facilitate the project. The agency provided assistance for the project through the Mississippi Job Protection through Energy Economic Development grant program, which is funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 and administered by MDA.
“Luvata remains committed to all of its operations in Grenada. Being able to capture new opportunities in the marketplace is critical to our long term success,” said Ed Muilwyk, Luvata’s director of manufacturing for Heat Transfer Solutions North America.
Luvata is a supplier of solutions, services, components and materials for manufacturing and construction. Luvata’s solutions are used in industries such as renewable energy, power generation, architecture, automotive transport, medicine, air conditioning, industrial refrigeration, consumer products and construction.
