Eagle Manufacturing to expand Brooke County operations


WELLSBURG, West Virginia — Eagle Manufacturing is expanding its operations in Brooke County.

The company plans to open a new metal fabrication department at the former Pillsbury Co. building in Wellsburg. An expansion of the company's plastics warehouse also is planned.

Media outlets report that Eagle Manufacturing president Joe Eddy announced the expansion on Friday during a visit by U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin.

Eddy says the metal fabrication department will produce a new line of metal bollards, machine guards and spill containment pallets.

He says the company plans to invest $10 million in the expansion.
