Mississippi’s manufacturing community is adding a new name.
ITW TrusSteel is opening a new 150,000-square-foot roll-forming and distribution facility in Pontotoc in north Mississippi.
Kevin Viravec, ITW Building Components Group vice president and general manager, says in a news release the factory will begin operating in the fourth quarter of 2014 and initially employ about 10 people.
Viravec says the plant will manufacture the chords and webs for the company’s TrusSteel product line. TrusSteel systems are utilized in a wide range of applications ranging from light-commercial and institutional buildings to retail facilities, medical clinics and multifamily housing.
ITW Building Components Group is renovating an existing facility in Pontotoc to convert it to the factory.
