ColorCoat Inc., a windows and doors coating application company, will invest $600,000 and create 80 new jobs in Obion County.

Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development commissioner Bob Rolfe — along with ColorCoat Inc. officials — announced today the company will locate new operations in South Fulton.

“I want to thank ColorCoat for choosing to locate its new facility in South Fulton and for creating 80 new jobs in Obion County,” Rolfe said. “This is a big win for South Fulton and the State of Tennessee and I look forward to our future partnership with ColorCoat and seeing this company grow and succeed in our state.”

ColorCoat is the largest third party exterior coatings applicator for window and door industry in the United States. The 14-year old company has operations in many states across the U.S.

“We are excited about opening the newest branch of ColorCoat in the state of Tennessee,” ColorCoat chief executive officer Mario Bekeris said. “Everyone here has been so welcoming and helpful. We thank you all for your hospitality and look forward to becoming part of the community of South Fulton.”

ColorCoat’s new facility will be used to paint vinyl and fiberglass windows and doors. With this new facility, ColorCoat will be better equipped to service its customers and the surrounding states.

“I am excited about the new industry coming to South Fulton and bringing with it jobs,” South Fulton Mayor David Lamb said. “This was one of my statements when elected mayor was to try and bring more industry and retail business so it would provide more badly-needed jobs. I hope with this new industry coming, it will have a chain reaction and other industry will look at coming to South Fulton.”

“We are very excited to have ColorCoat join our Obion County business community and are especially excited they have chosen South Fulton,” Obion County Joint Economic Development Council chief executive officer Lindsay Frilling said. “We look forward to a long-term relationship while offering jobs to our citizens and creating success for the company.”

“TVA and the Weakley County Municipal Electric System congratulate ColorCoat Inc. on its announcement to locate and create new jobs in Obion County,” said John Bradley, TVA senior vice president of economic development. “We are pleased to partner with the State of Tennessee, Obion County Economic Development Council, the City of South Fulton and Obion County officials to facilitate ColorCoat’s new location decision.
