Rebar Finishing Will Add 40 Jobs In Knox County

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Another 40 jobs are coming to Knox County as Gerdau expands its steel reinforcement bar plant.

The Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development said the new facility will apply finishing services to rebar now made at the company's Lonsdale mill.

Commissioner Bill Hagerty and Gerdau officials announced the expansion on Monday, saying the plant will have the capacity to finish about 120,000 tons of steel per year.

Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett said it was good to see a vacant building in the WestBridge Business Park be put back into industrial use.
