Sunbelt Solomon Services, one of the world’s largest providers of commercial and industrial electrical distribution equipment, plans to open a $5 million facility in Coffee County.
The plant, in Elba, will repair and recycle electrical transformers, creating 50 jobs initially.
“Sunbelt Solomon is a welcome addition to Alabama’s dynamic business community,” Gov. Kay Ivey said. “The company has made a great choice by locating this new operation in Coffee County, and I know the hard-working people of Elba will help make it a long-lasting success. This is just another reminder that Sweet Home Alabama is a top state for business.”
The Kansas-based Sunbelt Solomon will base its operation in an existing building, installing manufacturing equipment. The facility will open in June.
“Elba is the first greenfield facility we’ve built in several years, reaffirming our strategy of getting closer to our customer base while developing the human capital wherever we operate,” said Sunbelt Solomon CEO Gus Cedeño. “Sunbelt Solomon is excited to provide new, well-paying jobs and career paths to the Elba community while continuing the growth and expansion of our business.”
Sunbelt Solomon was formed in 2019 after a merger between Solomon Corp. and Sunbelt Transformer.
The company recently acquired Holland Industrial Services in Bay Minette.
“We’re doubling down in the state of Alabama right now,” Cedeño said. “These two substantial investments in Alabama we trust are clear signs to our customer service commitment in the Southeast for our utility, renewable, oil and gas, commercial and industrial customers.”
