SSM Industries Expands

SSM Industries Inc., Spring City, Tenn. — a manufacturer of flame-resistant (FR), cut-resistant and thermal fabrics for military, fire and rescue and industrial applications — will add 45,000 square feet of manufacturing space at its plant and 13 jobs to its current workforce of 90, with an additional 12 positions to be added in the future. The $3 million expansion will allow the company to produce specialized yarns to enhance its protective fabrics portfolio.

"This expansion will take SSM Industries to the next level in the textile manufacturing industry, and we are excited about the opportunities this expansion will allow us," said Phil Chandler, vice president of development, SSM Industries. "I am grateful for the continued support from state and local officials and look forward to growing our company in Spring City."
