Jobs announced for Turner County

January 31, 2006

Ashburn -- A new business will bring 25 new jobs to Turner County. McElroy Metal announced it will build a manufacturing facility in Ashburn's new industrial park.

The Louisiana based company manufactures metal roofing and siding and other metal building products.

"McElroy metal has already started construction," says Shelly Zorn of the Chamber of Commerce. "They're moving dirt in the back of the park. They hope to be open in April or May of 2006."

McElroy plans to hire 25 employees when they open and grow to 75 employees. The $1.7 million industrial park was paid for with $300,000 of sales tax money, and the rest came from federal and state grants.
