Company expansion and new jobs coming to Iuka

A steel components manufacturer and supplier in Tishomingo County is growing and adding more jobs.   

Samuel Roll Form Group is investing $6.9 million to expand, creating 30 new jobs.  A 67,000-square-foot addition is being constructed on the current 125,000-square-foot facility to accommodate the expansion.

Governor Tate Reeves said, “Mississippi’s skilled workforce continues to attract new investment and jobs from companies like Samuel Roll Form Group, which chose to expand in Iuka thanks to Northeast Mississippi’s talented workforce.  Samuel Roll Form Group’s 30 new employees will continue the tradition of producing quality steel products, enabling them to provide for their families and communities so the company and local economy can enjoy many more successful years in Tishomingo County.”

Samuel Roll Form Group is comprised of a network of metal manufacturing, processing, and distribution divisions.  It provides heavy roll-formed steel products to major industries, including the heavy construction and rail sectors.

Company President Lou Sartor said, “Our team is very excited about Samuel’s investment in Iuka. The additional 67,000-square-foot process bay will accommodate a number of additional rolling mills and complimentary steel fabricating equipment. We would like to thank the Mississippi Development Authority, Tishomingo County, and Tennessee Valley Authority for all of their support assistance and support, and we look forward to continuing to grow in this area for many years to come.”

The Mississippi Development Authority (MDA) is providing assistance for workforce training and equipment relocation. Tishomingo County and the Tennessee Valley Authority also are assisting with the project.

“Samuel Roll Form Group’s expansion is a prime example of public-private partnerships benefiting the people of our great state through investment, and most importantly, job creation,” said MDA Interim Director John Rounsaville.

The company plans to fill the 30 new jobs by May 2021, increasing employment at its facility to approximately 160.
