Surgoinsville's Homeland Vinyl expanding plant, adding jobs


Two years after purchasing a former plastic components plant in Surgoinsville, Homeland Vinyl announced Friday their plans to expand that facility and add new jobs.

A report from the TN Department of Economic and Community Development outlined the expansion that company officials plan to complete next month that adds 50,000-square feet to the facility and will create 50 new jobs.

Homeland purchased the former EPC plant in May 2015 in the Phipps Bend Industrial Park. The company manufactures fencing, rail and deck products and operates three other plants in the U.S.
