A construction industry leader,
has broken ground on a new 50,000-square-foot manufacturing facility south of Bartow. The facility will manufacture structural pre-cast/pre-stressed concrete products.
This is a great opportunity for the southwest corner of our county, which is predominantly phosphate-industry driven," says Rodney Carson, director of economic development at the Central Florida Development Council. "Metromont Corporation coming to Polk County is another expansion of job opportunities and brings different skillsets and job requirements to the area."
With Metromont Corp. joining Polk County
, it is expected that an estimated $6 million-$8 million in capital investment will be generated. This will create 100 new jobs in the county. Metromont will seek employees from engineers to laborers.
