O’Neal opening steel fabrication facility in Fayette

$5.5 million project will create 70 jobs

A new Fayette facility will include cutting-edge welding capabilities.

O’Neal Manufacturing Services plans to invest $5.5 million to open a steel fabrication facility in Fayette.

The project will create 70 full-time jobs within three years at the 130,000-square-foot facility.

OMS, a subsidiary of Birmingham-based O’Neal industries, provides carbon steel and aluminum parts for customers in construction, agriculture, transportation and other industries. The Fayette facility will feature robotic and manual welding stations, a beam-cutting line, wet-paint booth, press brakes and more.

“O’Neal Manufacturing Services’ investment will bring advanced capabilities to its new fabrication facility in Fayette,” said Greg Canfield, Alabama’s Commerce secretary. “This is a positive development for the community not only in terms of job creation but also for growth potential in the future.”

The new facility will be the company’s 10th North American location.

“We are thrilled to have acquired the facility, and we are even more excited to have the skilled workers that were available in Fayette,” said Kent Brown, president and CEO of OMS. “People have always been our most valuable asset. In this time of unprecedented low unemployment and worker shortages across the country, good people have become even more valuable.”
