$5 million power pole factory coming to Tallapoosa County

Dadeville Pole Co. will build a $5 million facility to manufacture and distribute power poles in Dadeville, creating 12 jobs.

The facility will be built at the William Thweatt Industrial Park in Tallapoosa County, with construction later this month and production beginning by the end of the year.

Dadeville Pole, a subsidiary of Alabama-based Ziebach & Webb Timber Co, is acquiring 23 acres in the Thweatt Industrial Park. The new facility will produce power poles, pilings and related products for utility suppliers and other entities. The jobs will operate the mill and dry kilns. There will also be indirect jobs with local wood suppliers and loggers, officials said.

Mark Byal, general manager of Dadeville Pole, said the decision to locate in Tallapoosa County was easy because of the Lake Martin Area Economic Development Alliance and local officials.

“You can tell that the economic development office surrounds themselves with a great team, they were able to pull all the players to the table, the county engineer’s office, the commissioners, Alabama Power, the City of Dadeville,” he said. “No matter what our questions were, the EDA team was able to find an answer for us.”
