Peak North America USA is coming to the Gulf Coast, planning a $24 million facility in Mobile County’s Irvington community that will provide services to the wood products industry.
The project will create 175 jobs over four years, according to the Mobile Chamber.
“Peak North America USA has an established track record of innovation within the wood products industry, and I am happy to see a company with this kind of pedigree put down roots in Alabama,” said Greg Canfield, secretary of the Alabama Department of Commerce. “I’m confident that Peak North America will find an ideal industrial home in Mobile, where it can grow and thrive.”
Peak is acquiring Endurance Equipment Co. in Irvington as part of the project. The Peak facility will focus on serving sawmills, pellet plants and Oriented Strand Board (OBS) producers.
“By being strategically located in the Southern United States, we will offer state-of-the-art manufacturing and fabrication services related to the forest products sector, while gaining a geographical competitive advantage for our clients,” Peak North America CEO Brian Fehr said. “We will create a culture of safety, efficiency, enthusiasm and inclusivity for all our employees, with the intention of growing operations beyond projected forecasts, and we will use the local workforce and community to do so.”
Peak North America has headquarters in Canada.
