A PROJECT BY The Mitchell Group
ZinkPower, a European leader in hot-dip galvanizing and powder-coating services selected Waco for its first greenfield operation in the United States. The company will operate as Zinkpower – Waco, LLC and received local support for the project, adding jobs, bringing new investment and expanding the industrial supplier network in Waco and central Texas. Its plants are known for the versatility, flexibility, quality and concern for the environment.
Zinkpower provides hot-dip galvanizing services in support of the structural steel industry. The Waco is the only hot-dip galvanizing center between the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex and San Antonio. Knowing everything is bigger in Texas, the Waco site is home to Zinkpower’s largest dipping kettle, 60 feet, which has the ability to accommodate a broad spectrum of customer needs.
ZinkPower’s project represents a $32 million investment, which includes the construction of a 160,000 square-feet facility and equipment. Over four years, Zinkpower anticipates the creation of 100 new jobs.
Zinkpower’s decision to locate in Greater Waco represents a regional collaboration for economic development between Waco and McLennan County, with both organizations partnering to provide incentive support for the project.
The project was completed in June of 2021.
