Gestamp Solar Steel to expand in Arizona
Gestamp Solar Steel is slated to expand its Surprise, Ariz., facility that makes parts for solar power plants and add 80 new jobs.
The company announced this week at a Surprise council meeting it was starting the second phase of its construction next week, which would add 36,000 square feet to the facility. A third phase of 140,000 square feet will be added starting later this year.
The expansion is ahead of schedule, according to a development agreement the city has with Gestamp. A total of five expansions are planned for the facility.
The company invested $10 million in the first 75,000-square-foot phase with plans to invest up to $40 million and quadruple the size of the facility over the next few years.
