GRENADA — Luvata is expanding production capabilities at its Grenada facility in order to pursue new market opportunities. The Mississippi Development Authority (MDA) reports the expansion represents a company investment of $1 million and will create 20 new jobs.
This latest expansion marks the company’s second in Grenada in under a year. In August 2011, Luvata expanded operations at its aluminum production plant, also with the goal of capturing new opportunities in the marketplace. That project was a $1 million company investment, as well.
MDA worked closely with company and local officials to support the project, providing funding for improvements to the publicly-owned facility in which Luvata is located. Grenada County also provided assistance for improvements to the facility.
Luvata is an international metals 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. The company employs over 7,000 staff members in 18 countries and works with consumers such as Siemens, Toyota, CERN, Shaaz and DWD International.
