James Hardie Building Products will invest nearly $220 million and create more than 200 jobs with a new manufacturing facility in Prattville, officials announced today.

“Welcome to what you will soon come to know as sweet home Alabama,” Gov. Kay Ivey told James Hardie officials at the announcement at the Marriott Prattville Hotel & Conference Center at Capitol Hill.

The new manufacturing facility will be constructed on a 103-acre site in Prattville’s South Industrial Park, an AdvantageSite-certified park located between U.S. Highway 82 and Autauga County Road 4.Joe Blasko, general counsel and chief compliance officer for James Hardie Industries, said the company focused on Prattville because of its access to resources and the raw materials needed for its advanced fiber cement products. He also noted the location’s convenience to the highway system, access to its key markets and Alabama’s strong workforce.
