DeMattia Group, a real estate development, architecture and construction firm, recently broke ground for Ventower Industries’ new manufacturing facility.

Ventower Industries will manufacture wind towers in the new 115,000-sq-ft building located at the Port of Monroe. The site has access to rail, water and truck routes to allow components to be delivered to all areas east of the Mississippi.

At full production, Ventower plans to build up to 250 wind towers per year and employ an estimated 150 new workers. The facility’s design incorporates a planned expansion of 76,000 sq ft.

DeMattia Group provides architecture and construction services for the project.
