Since being established in 2006, Attala Steel has seen impressive growth – in terms of footprint, operations, and the number of individuals it employs. An expansion in 2013 resulted in Attala Steel adding a galvanizing component to its Kosciusko facility, resulting in the team once again finding a competitive advantage.
“That (expansion) allowed us to be the only company in the US that actually rolls the steel, saws it, touches it and galvanizes it in one location,” Lindsey said. “And that’s why we are so far ahead of our competitors.”
“Someone can call us today and need an order tomorrow. We can do it when the other guys can’t; they’re dependent on an outside galvanizer.”
Prior to the 2013 expansion, Attala Steel employed thirty-four individuals in Kosciusko. Presently, the firm boasts a team of more than one hundred in the community. With an additional location in Birmingham, Alabama, the Attala Steel team spans miles as well. In all, the Kosciusko-based operations produce approximately thirty tons of product per hour.
The facility provides steel to some of the largest Solar Companies in the United States including RP Construction who moved to Attala County in 2021 to be closer to the mill.
