Custom Machinery Manufacturer to Invest $4.5 Million, Create 25 Jobs in Tipton County

NASHVILLE –Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bill Hagerty today announced Rose Fabricating & Industrial Solutions, LLC will expand its Covington, Tenn. facility, located at 290 Industrial Road.  The expansion represents an investment of $4.5 million and the creation of 25 manufacturing and sales jobs.

“Supporting Tennessee companies like Rose Fabricating that have strong, deep ties to a community and its citizens is a cornerstone of our economic development strategy,” Hagerty said.  “Existing industry expansions are one of the keys to growing our state’s economy, and I congratulate the company for its continued confidence in Tennessee’s workforce and business-friendly climate.”

Rose Fabricating & Industrial Solutions, LLC fabricates and manufactures carbon steel, stainless steel and aluminum structural weldments, along with custom process equipment. Founded in 1953 and formerly known as Rose Iron Works, the company has extensive experience in building custom machinery for some of America's most respected companies.

“In an industry that is ever changing and advancing, our company’s commitment to the core values of honesty, integrity and quality has ensured our steady growth,” Allan M. Rose, president and general manager, Rose Fabricating, said.  “Thanks to the state of Tennessee, we will be continuing our expansion and plan on adding several jobs in the next few years. We are still a family business that values personal relationships with our employees and clients, and we are blessed to have the opportunity to provide more jobs for people in our community.”

“Covington Mayor David Gordon and the rest of the HTL Advantage team are excited about Rose Fabricating’s recent growth initiative,” Duane Lavery, president and CEO, HTL Advantage, said.  “The Rose name has been a fixture in our community for decades and to know they are still growing in this ever-changing technological economy shows not only the spirit of this company but also their faith in the local workforce.  We look forward to working with Rose now and in the future to provide the local support they need in the way of infrastructure and employee training for their continued success and growth.”

“Rose Fabricating has been a part of the Tipton County industrial community for many years,” Tipton County Executive Jeff Huffman said.  “It is a homegrown company that contributes to the well-being of our citizens both as a prominent employer and as a community business leader.  Given the fact that about 80 percent of jobs in Tennessee come from the expansion of existing businesses, it is certainly great news to hear that Rose Fabricating is expanding its investment in Tipton County and creating job opportunities for more of our citizens.”

Interested applicants can apply in person at the Covington facility.
