Epsilon Industries, a Canadian-based off-site construction system manufacturer, plans to open a site in Tuscaloosa that will create 180 jobs.
The company plans to invest about $3 million in a new facility in the Tuscaloosa County Airport Industrial Park, where it will support the delivery of pre-fabricated modular utility systems. The facility will be in an existing building, and production is scheduled to start in May.
“We are excited to be a part of the Tuscaloosa community,” said Chris Wiederick, president of Epsilon Industries. “We will be hosting many of our top clientele at our facility, and we feel that Tuscaloosa offers a convenient location with direct access to the airport, as well as a welcoming and entertaining environment.”
For the new facility, Epsilon will hire boilermakers, pipefitters, pipe welders, electricians, engineers and more.
“In addition to the high-quality jobs that will be created, we are presented with an opportunity to introduce our wonderful city, county and state to the company’s customers that will visit its plant throughout the manufacturing process,” said Norman Crow, chairman of the Tuscaloosa County Economic Development Authority.
