In addition, Tenax will create eight to 12 additional jobs tied to a new initiative to make the Evergreen facility more efficient and environmentally friendly. The growth project is expected to be complete by Fall 2022.
East Baltimore, Maryland-based Tenax is known for its trademark orange plastic safety fencing at buildings and safety, a product that has inspired many imitators. The company also makes specialty products for netting, pipe protection, construction, agriculture, gardening and DIY applications.
“The Tenax expansion is providing the spark our community needs to demonstrate Conecuh County is the place to be,” said Jessica Dent, director of Conecuh County Economic Development.
