SAF, a global metals distributor, fabricator, and finisher, is expanding its capacity and capabilities with the opening of a new manufacturing location in Temple, Texas. The 60,000-sq.ft. facility will specialize in metal fabrication and distribution, including the manufacturing of panel systems and extrusions, sheet distribution, and custom metal fabrication.
Temple Economic Development Corporation, a nonprofit organization that works closely with local, regional, and state partners to assist with business expansion and relocation in Temple, helped SAF select the location for its new facility.
The new SAF facility is the latest addition to the company’s United States footprint of facilities in Atlanta and Villa Rica, Georgia; Nashville, Tennessee; Indianapolis, Indiana; and Redding, California. The company plans to hire up to ten employees in various roles as it commences operations in Texas. The plant may eventually employ up to 50 people in the coming years.
