Firm To Expand Manufacturing Presence
November 25, 2019

TST Fabrications, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of TST Construction, has announced that the firm will invest $4.1 million to expand its manufacturing presence in the City of Norfolk by acquiring the production assets of a sheet metal fabrication business.

TST Construction (TST) is a Class A general contractor and a service-disabled veteran-owned small business that provides a variety of specialty construction services including roofing, manufacturing, and defense to its government clients. TST combines innovative solutions and strategic capabilities, effective communication, and intelligence to deliver its projects safer, faster, and within budget.

“We are honored to be a part of the Virginia business community,” said Russell Turner, Commander, United States Navy (Retired), CEO of TST Fabrications, LLC. “The TST family of companies are headquartered in Norfolk, and as a result of continued organic growth in support of the Department of Defense and the military community, we are proud to announce these latest additions to the TST team. The region’s close proximity to the military, skilled workforce, and pro-business policies create an amazing environment for manufacturing. We are sincerely grateful to Governor Northam, the Virginia Economic Development Partnership, and the City of Norfolk. Their support, along with the Virginia Jobs Investment Program, has helped to ensure that we have the resources necessary to expand our manufacturing footprint and set the stage for our next chapter of growth.”

According to a statement from Governor Ralph S. Northam in response to the announcement, “TST Construction has thrived in Virginia since its founding in 2007, and we are proud that this service-disabled veteran-owned business will expand its manufacturing presence in the City of Norfolk. Attracting and retaining manufacturers remains a key component of our efforts to promote economic growth in all parts of Virginia, and with nearly 280 manufacturers located in the region, Hampton Roads has emerged as a hub for this important industry. We thank TST Fabrications for reinvesting in the Commonwealth, and we stand ready to help facilitate the company’s continued success.”

The Virginia Economic Development Partnership (VEDP) worked with the City of Norfolk to secure the project for Virginia and will support TST’s job creation through the state-funded Virginia Jobs Investment Program (VJIP), which provides consultative services and funding to companies creating new jobs in order to support employee recruitment and training activities.
