68 THE DISTRIBUTOR’S LINK Tennessee Galvanizing began production at a new plant designed for fasteners and small parts in May. In June a fire destroyed the plant. Re-construction has begun and the Jasper, TN plant is expected to be operating in early 2014, CEO David Ware told FIN. "They haven't told me the cause," Ware said of the insurance and fire department investigations. But the insurance company has approved rebuilding. All new machinery has been purchased for the new plant, Ware said. Rebuilding will go faster than the initial construction because the concrete work was not destroyed. The new .3 million plant was announced in 2012. It would create 35 jobs in Jasper, which is in Southern Tennessee west of Chattanooga. For information, contact Tennessee Galvanizing at 1535 Industrial Blvd., (P.O. Box 609), Jasper, TN 37347. Tel: 423 942-1020 or 1-800-4-HOT-DIP.
