TrueCore announced plans to establish operations in DeKalb County.
The South Carolina-based company, which manufactures insulated metal panels, will construct a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in DeKalb County and create up to 75 new, high-wage jobs by the end of 2023.
The company will invest more than $28.5 million to construct and equip a 175,000-sq.-ft. plant at 305 Industrial Parkway in Waterloo.
The new facility will house two continuous production lines each at more than 700 lineal feet, with the first line producing foamed-in-place urethane wall, ceiling and roof panels, and the second producing mineral wool panels that carry one, two and three hourly fire ratings.
TrueCore broke ground on the building in April and expects the building to be complete by December 2020 with production at full capacity by May 2021.
