“We are extremely excited to open our newest manufacturing facility in the Town of Fairmont,” said Jimmy Broach, president & CEO of Atlantic Building Components & Services. “The minute we visited Fairmont, we knew this was the perfect location for our next facility.

This project is facilitated by a Job Development Investment Grant that is approved by the state’s Economic Investment Committee. Over the next 12 years the project is estimated to grow the state’s economy by $221 million.
