The Development Authority of Bryan County (DABC) announced that CZM, a foundation drilling rig assembly center, is planning the expansion of its existing facility in the Interstate Centre II industrial park in Ellabell. The company plans to add additional shop space to increase capacity to meet growing demand for its products.
“CZM has been a success story in Bryan County since the beginning of their operations in 2012, and it has been great watching them repeatedly hit new milestones,” says DABC Chairman Jon Seagraves. “I think their story really pays tribute to Bryan County’s reputation for being a great place to do business.”
CZM plans to invest $5 million into this expansion, and will add 33,000 square feet to the company’s existing 38,000 square-foot facility. This additional square footage will be primarily used as additional shop space and space to store the company’s final assembled products.
“With the added square footage to our factory in the United States, CZM will expand its product availability to consolidate the company as the North American market leader for foundation drill rigs,” says Giuliano Clo, President of CZM. “We are happy to be in Bryan County since 2012 and plan to keep investing in this great community.”
The company will also be increasing its workforce numbers to keep up with this expansion and future growth. CZM anticipates hiring 15-20 new team members upon completion of the project. These positions will include assembly mechanics, parts warehouse workers, engineers, field technicians, and product support.
