FAIRFIELD, Ala. (AP) – A Pennsylvania company says it plans to reopen a piece of Birmingham’s manufacturing industry by spending $25 million on an old plant that will become a production, service and distribution center.

HarbisonWalker International says construction will begin early this year at a site west of downtown in Fairfield. The 200,000-square-foot facility is expected to open by the end of the year with about 50 workers.

The company makes refractory products, which are designed to withstand extremely high temperatures in uses including steel production. It shut down the same site in 2019 when it decided to end a business line.
