NATCHEZ — Great River Industries, formerly known as Enersteel, is expanding its operations in Natchez by locating its corporate headquarters there and adding 12,000 square feet of manufacturing space.
The project represents a corporate investment of $4 million and will create 25 new jobs. Additionally, the company will retain the facility’s existing 150 employees.
Great River Industries specializes in fabricated steel plate products that include storage tanks and pressure vessels for industrial process markets. The company will also produce ductwork and other major air quality control components for the power and energy industry.
“We are pleased to be growing in southwest Mississippi again. Great River Industries will continue to bring innovation and competitive manufacturing/fabrication practices to this region, thus supplying high-skilled job availability,” said Great River Industries’ Vice President of Business Development Aaron Shermer. “We will continue to serve a wide variety of industries, including the energy sectors of oil and gas, power, liquefied natural gas, petro-chemical, mining and steel industries. We are responding to our customers’ demands for specialty, large-scale fabrication and field construction. The investment in the current facility is, in part, made possible through collaboration with the Mississippi Development Authority (MDA). During planning for the new expansion and all future expansions, Great River Industries will continue collaborating with MDA and as usual, MDA helps makes these decisions to expand more economical to make. The business climate in Mississippi has and continues to be very warm and comfortable.”
MDA provided assistance in support of the project for the construction of the new corporate headquarters building and upgrades to the existing facility. Adams County provided assistance for the project, as well.
