Ennis industries set to expand

Ennis is in the midst of a wave of industrial expansion projects while it lobbies for some big players to locate here.
Direct Energy will pick up jobs from a relocation effort following layoffs and a facility closure in Richardson by the beginning of 2010, and Polyguard Products and Payne Fence are also looking at projects to expand. City Manager Steve Howerton is also playing cards close to his chest on more expansion projects that are not yet being announced — caution is important for the negotiation process, he said.

“We hope to have a very positive announcement about a very large industry by Jan. 20, 2010,” Howerton said.

The Direct Energy expansion will add a yet-to-be-determined number of jobs to the area that will be filled both by relocating workers and new area employees once the company shutters its Richardson facility.
