Mercer County commissioners, community and economic development officials, and Ferguson officials gathered at the site of a new addition. The expansion project will be a 160,000 facility with six acres of outdoor storage.

“This will be a pipe yard, which will be shipping out pipes, fittings, and we'll also be doing some fabrication to most of our branches in the five-state region.”

When Ferguson looked to build an expansion facility, the welcoming and cooperative attitude of Mercer County made them the perfect choice.

“Part of our due diligence is to make sure that we are making the right selection for Ferguson. As we went through the process, and dealing with Jared Ebbing and dealing with the commissioners, it just brought us to the conclusion that this is the right place for Ferguson.”

“This will be our third project. We expanded a knockout wall two years ago. This would be our third one, which would be, in a three and a half year span, quite a lot of growth.”

The facility brings numerous benefits to the county led by the creation of new jobs.

“There will be a total, between both buildings, of about 30-36 employees that will be added to the site.”

“There's going to be more revenue coming in to the county through those new jobs. Also, more revenue coming in through their business that they do. When you bring products in that are going to be shipped out, that means there is going to be some major funding that can help out.”

Completion of the facility is set for the beginning of January, with operations beginning in February or March.
