Buffalo River Truss, LLC, a manufacturing company that produces gable and shed trusses and bar joists, announced an expansion to its operation in Perry County.
According to a release from the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development, the company will move its entire operations to Lobelville.
The new facility will “allow for more onsite processing and custom manufacturing for the metal buildings industry.”
“We feel blessed and excited to continue serving our community with new employment opportunities in Perry County. This expansion will allow us to add product lines, develop better career opportunities and strengthen community relationships. We are grateful to all the people that have helped make this possible and specifically want to thank Governor Bill Lee, TNECD, our General Assembly members, Senator Joey Hensley and Representative Kirk Haston, Perry County Mayor John Carrol, Lobelville Mayor Robbie Moore and everyone else that had input in the process and worked with our team at Buffalo River Truss,” said Monroe Miller, owner and manager, Buffalo River Truss, LLC.
Furthermore, the group opted to expand the operation and add new jobs in a “Tier 4 distressed county.” According to the TNECD, a distressed county will “rank among the 10 percent most economically distressed counties in the nation.”
There has been an ongoing effort to reduce the number of distressed counties throughout the state.
“This expansion by Buffalo River Truss is another example of the business-friendly atmosphere that exists here in Lobelville. This investment will result in even more jobs and economic development for our community. I congratulate all of those who helped make this announcement possible, and I look forward to the continued success of Buffalo River Truss here in Perry County.” added State Representative Kirk Haston (R-Lobelville).
