Sabre Industries Receives City Award for Growth

A "Growing Sioux City Award" was presented to Sabre Industries today recognizing the company's growth and investment in Sioux City. The award, presented by Mayor Bob Scott, was accepted by Sabre Industries Executive Vice President and General Manager, Brian Newberg. Sioux City wind shirts were provided to company executives and a tree was planted on their property, signifying the company's commitment to growing in Sioux City.

"Sabre is pleased that we decided to expand our operations in Sioux City," said Brian Newberg, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Sabre Industries. "Having been here for over thirty years, we already had dedicated and qualified employees; however, expanding our operations meant expanding our workforce as well. The local community stepped up and helped us hire and train our current employee base. As we continue to grow, our Southbridge location provides us with both the capacity needed for future expansion and increased opportunities for our employees."

"Sabre's investment in Sioux City has been tremendous," said Mayor Bob Scott. "It's great to see them continue to grow and add good-paying jobs."

Sabre, a leading manufacturer of steel communication and electric transmission infrastructure products in the United States, expanded its Iowa operations to a 150-acre site in the City's Southbridge Business Park in 2013. The increased demand for utility structures created a need for the company to build a new 192,000 square foot manufacturing plant. The multi-phased expansion has provided Sabre the ability to locate all Sioux City operations on to one campus with a total investment of $28 million and 532 jobs. Phase I was completed in January and construction is underway on Phase 2, including the expansion of their main plant and an additional building.

Sabre Industries' various divisions design, manufacture, and provide a variety of infrastructure products and services across several domestic and international markets. The company has manufacturing facilities in Sioux City, IA; Alvarado, TX; and Bossier City, LA with corporate headquarters located in Alvarado, TX.
