Quality Iron & Steel, LLC will invest $2.8 million to establish operations in Selmer, TN. The steel fabrication company will create 32 jobs in McNairy County. A new business, Quality Iron & Steel will locate its operations in a 54,000-square-foot facility at 335 Tennessee Ave.
“I am truly proud to announce that Selmer, Tennessee is the new home of Quality Iron & Steel’s fabrication facility,” said Craig Salabor, co-owner, Quality Iron & Steel. “With an available facility that was built with steel fabrication as its primary function, a ready workforce and especially having the citizens and local governing officials behind me, I can say with conviction that Selmer, Tennessee is the right community for Quality Iron & Steel.”
The company anticipates operations will begin in May 2019. Quality Iron & Steel will fabricate structural steel for commercial and industrial use, producing beams, columns, stairs, bridges and railings.
“One of my top priorities is to attract good jobs and industry to rural Tennessee,” said Gov. Bill Lee. “Quality Iron & Steel’s investment will expand the job opportunities for Selmer residents, and I look forward to the many ways this new operation will spark economic activity in Southwest Tennessee.”
“I’d like to thank Quality Iron & Steel for its commitment to Selmer,” said Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development (TNECD) Commissioner Bob Rolfe. “Tennessee’s Tier-4 communities like McNairy County have our utmost attention when it comes to supporting new jobs, and we’ve been able to recruit approximately 2,000 job commitments and $250 million worth of investment to Tier-4 counties since 2018.”
Since 2015, TNECD has supported five economic development projects in McNairy County. These projects represent approximately 450 job commitments and $13.6 million in private capital investment.
