Jōb Industrial Services Chosen as EPC for New State-of-the-Art Fertilizer Plant

Jōb Industrial Services (Jōb), an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) company serving the oil and gas, power, materials and chemical industries, has been chosen by Tessenderlo Kerley, Inc. to design and build a greenfield fertilizer plant in Defiance, Ohio.

The new 50,000-square-foot production facility will occupy 50 acres and is set to become operational in 2024. The multi-million-dollar facility will serve the Eastern Great Lakes region through its distribution partners and will include terminal loadouts for rail cars and tanker trucks.

Brian Fox, project manager, Tessenderlo Kerley, said “We are pleased to have selected Jōb as our EPC firm for this important project in Defiance, Ohio. We know they will be a great partner in the safe execution of our vision, building a state-of-the-art facility in an area with such a great and supportive community.”

The liquid fertilizer plant, which broke ground in September, will help farmers and the agricultural industry by producing liquid sulfur-based crop nutrition and sulfite chemistries. Jōb will be responsible for the revolutionary project from start to finish. With the company’s experience and infrastructure, Jōb can provide client customization throughout the entire EPC process.

Chris Tekiela, project manager, Jōb, said, “We are very excited about this opportunity to be a part of a project executed by such a reputable multi-national company. This will be huge for the local community as it promotes growth and high-paying jobs for rural communities.”

Jōb Industrial Services and Tessenderlo Kerley joined the mayor of Defiance, Ohio in the September groundbreaking ceremony for Tessenderlo Kerley’s greenfield fertilizer plant in Defiance. Jōb was chosen as EPC for the innovative 50,000-square-foot facility, to be completed in 2024.
