The new 127,000-square-foot foundry will have two production lines, which Lodge said will increase its manufacturing capacity by 75 percent. The company also expects to add 92 additional employees to its current roster of 300 workers when the new foundry is completed in June 2017. The new foundry will include a melt center, sand system and two sand cast molding machines.
Located across the Tennessee River from South Pittsburg, the new 212,000-square-foot warehouse is slated for March 2017 completion.
