NATCHEZ, Miss. (AP) — An Ohio-based company says it's taking over a south Mississippi plant that makes storage tanks and other large steel products, and it's adding 75 jobs to the existing work force.
Enerfab Inc., based in Cincinnati, is moving into the plant in Natchez that had been run by Dynasteel. The plant will be known as Enersteel.
An announcement Tuesday from Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour's office says the plant will make fabricated steel-plate products, including storage tanks and pressure vessels for industrial process markets. It also will make duct work and other air-quality control components for the power generation industry.
Jeff Hock, Enerfab's president of process solutions and fabricated products, says the Natchez-Adams County Port on the Mississippi River will help the company ship and sell large fabricated products.
