Urban Action Community Development (UACD) deployed $7.5MM in Round 17 NMTC allocation to United Alloy, Inc. (UAI), a woman-owned enterprise headquartered in Janesville, WI that produces the highest quality leak-proof metal fuel tanks, reservoirs, skids, frames, chassis, trailers, heavy metal fabrications, and complex weldments. To help meet customer demand in the southern region, in 2020, UAI opened a second 121k SF facility in Seguin, TX (United Alloy Texas and UAT). To further scale operations, United Alloy Texas needs to add an additional 110k SF of capacity to its Seguin facility (the Project), which will enable UAI and UAT to meet increasing customer demand. The new construction and installation of heavy-duty FFE for $26MM will include the latest automation for light sheet metal fabrication, powder coating, and assembly. The extra space will allow UAI/UAT to continue to grow its capacity fabricating and assembling sheet metal enclosures for large original equipment manufacturers (OEM) customers.
