TeMa North America and West Virginia officials recently celebrated the Italian-based manufacturing company’s first North American venture with a groundbreaking ceremony.
The new 42,000 SF advanced manufacturing plant in Kearneysville will produce insulation and drainage systems for residential, commercial, and industrial sectors using automated plastics-extrusion technology.
“TeMa North America is investing in a state-of-the-art advanced manufacturing facility that will create 30 new jobs. TeMa is the latest international company to locate in our 400-acre Burr Business Park, and with each new tenant, we are further strengthening and diversifying our economy in Jefferson County,“ says Nicolas Diehl, executive director of the Jefferson County Development Authority.
TeMa North America, one of 19 worldwide subsidiaries of Technologies and Materials, is based in Trieste, Italy. The company is globally well known for its continuous research and development of new products in the insulation, drainage and geotechnical sector; it also has plants in Italy, Spain, Turkey, Romania and Russia.
“Among the most rewarding aspects of being a client’s partner is that — together — we can offer opportunities to those who live in the communities we serve,” says Jeff Boehm, President of Howard Shockey & Sons, Inc. “Our partnership with TeMa and its leadership has been delightful, and the jobs TeMa provides will help families in Jefferson County for decades to come.”
The project will be completed on a fast track schedule, and the plant is expected to open this fall.
