The 134-year-old Alabama company is expanding its wood products manufacturing business through the construction of the new facility, which will produce Southern yellow pine lumber. The Thomasville Mill will join the company’s existing facility in Moundville, which has been operating since 1997.
“The Westervelt Co. has long played a prominent role in Alabama’s booming lumber industry and has done so while promoting good environmental stewardship,” Governor Ivey said.
“I’m very excited to see that Westervelt is thriving and that they are building their second mill in rural Clarke County. This manufacturing facility is going to have a major impact on this area and give dozens of people a chance to earn a living from a trusted company.”
