Central States Manufacturing officially opened its new branch in Seguin during a grand opening ceremony Wednesday morning.
The business specializes in metal roofing and building products that are used in the construction of post frame steel buildings. They also produce standing seam products. The new facility covers 44,000 square feet of manufacturing space.
According to a press release from the city office, the company plans to employ 20 to 25 individuals to begin operations, and hopes to have upwards of 50 local employees within the next five years.
“We are excited to begin operations in our new facility,” said Stan Pissarski, general manager of operations for Central States Manufacturing.
“Seguin is the perfect place for a manufacturing facility for many reasons. From a transportation and logistics standpoint, our Seguin facility provides easy, direct access to Interstate 10, State Highway 123 and the State Highway 130 toll.”
Pissarski also mentioned the proximity of many of Central States’ business partners, such as Fastenal, Love’s, Home Depot, Office Depot, CMC Recycling Seguin and Guadalupe Regional Medical Center, as a contributing factor to the company’s decision to come to Seguin.
The press release states the facility is designed to receive and store raw materials, as well as manufacture metal building components.
It also has the capability to load route trucks and support daily service to and from the southern point of Austin, south to Brownsville and west along the Interstate 10 corridor to Louisiana.
The new facility is located at 2902 North Heideke Street between State Highway 123 Bypass and Interstate 10.
