Military supply company expansion promises 120+ jobs in Limestone County

LIMESTONE COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

An Ohio company has announced a multimillion dollar expansion in the Tennessee Valley.

HDT Global specializes in military equipment production. Their expansion creates more than 120 new high-paying jobs to the economy.

HDT’s new facility sits on the northeast corner of the Interstate 565/65 interchange in Limestone County.

HDT Global already operates one facility that opened nearly a decade ago out there. It employs 80 people and sits next to the new site.

On Tuesday, the company announced they're retrofitting a second facility right next door and will begin making high-end military tents and equipment. We've also learned HDT is going to transition operations from Virginia to Huntsville to aid in this expansion effort.

A company representative said they're adding more than 200,000 square feet of production space and want to pump out specific products by December.

“Some of are frame shelters and some of them are what we would call air-beam shelters. That's going to be the focal point of this facility as we start but we have growth opportunities for future programs that we're looking into,” said HDT’s Michael Kinney.

The company is going to start posting jobs this week. They looked at a double digit number of cities in multiple states before settling on the Huntsville market.
