TeMa in Jefferson County is set to add multi-million expansion

KEARNEYSVILLE, W.Va. — Gov. Jim Justice has announced today the Technologies and Materials (TeMa) North American manufacturing plant located in Jefferson County is set to add a $7 million expansion, which will double the size of the facility.

“TeMa is an innovative, environmentally-friendly company that chose to locate in West Virginia in 2018,” Justice said in a release. “The fact they are expanding and adding 15 new, great paying jobs and investing millions in their facility is a testament to their success here.”

TeMa produces insulation and drainage systems for residential, commercial, and industrial uses such as erosion control, soil reinforcement, aqua control, and green roofs and is located in Kearneysville.

TeMa broke ground on their original site in Jefferson County in April 2018. Less than a year later, in February 2019, production began in its 42,000-square-foot facility, a release said.

“This new expansion of our facility will include additional warehouse space for our raw materials and finished products,” said TeMa North America’s chief executive, Tonj Ciotti in a release. “Our company is growing quickly, and this is a much-needed addition.”

The Italian-based manufacturing company chose Jefferson County as the location of its first facility in North America due to the location’s business-friendly community and exceptionally qualified workforce, a release said..

“Companies like TeMa can choose anywhere in the world to build, invest, and grow,” said Jefferson County Commissioner Steve Stolipher in a release. “Their decision to increase their investment in our community is a big win for us. It shows that we can compete on a global stage and have created a place that businesses and people want to call home.”

Officials plan to create more warehouse space, additional office spaces, and an additional line for production with the doubling of space size.
