EMSCO EXPANDING IN ANNISTON, ALABAMA
Anniston, AL – The Calhoun County Economic Development Council (EDC) is pleased to announce that local existing industry, EMSCO, will be expanding their Anniston operations.
EMSCO has been serving foundries all over the United States from their Anniston location for over 30 years. Founded in 1977 as Electric Melting Service Company, EMSCO services and installs induction equipment produced by any OEM. Known as the Melting Industry’s First Responder, EMSCO operates on the principle that foundries choose suppliers that understand their needs and have established core principles of quick customer response and dedicated customer service that their customers have come to depend on.
The $4 million expansion to their existing facility will expand their current workforce with the addition of 14 new jobs. The new development at EMSCO will allow for the company to begin production on a new initiative known as HyprCool® Hybrid Process Cooling Systems; this new process will use hybrid adiabatic technology to use less water to cool heating towers that are used for metal-working. This process will prevent overheating during the summer and freezing during the winter season.
EMSO President Jim Dyer stated, “We have been very pleased with the quality workforce that has run our Southern Operations for three decades. It became an easy choice to expand our operations in Anniston.”
Over the past year and a half, the EDC has worked diligently with EMSCO to see their expansion to fruition. “We are thrilled to have EMSCO expanding their operations at their current facility in Anniston,” stated Larry Deason, Chairman of the Calhoun County Economic Development Council. “This is an industry that we have developed a strong relationship and worked with to make sure that their expansion needs are met and the best possible scenario is reached.”
“We look forward to furthering our footprint within both Anniston and Calhoun County as the expansion plans take off and turn into reality,” stated Jimmy Horton, Vice President and General Manager of Southern Operations at EMSCO. Horton also said that estimated completion date will be May 2016.
Founded in 1977 as Electric Melting Service Company, EMSCO has developed a reputation as the Melting Industry’s First Responder. EMSCO, Inc. has four locations in the United States: EMSCO North in Massillon, OH; EMSCO South in Anniston, AL; EMSCO Installations in Rancocas, NJ; and EMSCO West in Pico Rivera, CA.
