Metal fabrication booming in Iowa

By October 16, 2020 October 20th, 2020 No Comments

The global metal fabrication market is expected to grow at a rate of 3%, reaching $21.38 billion by 2024, and Iowa companies continue to grab their share of the growth. To better achieve operational synergies and global competitiveness, four equipment manufacturers served by Alliant Energy recently announced operation expansions.

In total, these state-of-the-art fabrication companies will create over 100 new jobs and invest in excess of $16 million in plant expansions and new metal forming, fabricating, welding and finishing equipment. Skilled workers of these firms will produce attachments for skid-steer loaders, excavators, industrial tractors, industrial and agriculture trailers, along with grain-handling equipment.
