CAMERON, MILAM COUNTY - The $10 million expansion of Charlotte Pipe and Foundry is underway at Cameron Industrial Park. Located at 2400 Blake Ave., the Cameron plant — which manufactures PVC pipe — opened in October 1981 and has a staff of 33.

The expansion is expected to add approximately ten new full-time jobs to the Cameron plant.

The City of Cameron and Milam County approved tax incentives and the city and Cameron school district authorized the Freeport exemption.

“The Freeport exemption is a state legislative exemption for goods that are manufactured in the state and shipped out within a specified period of time,” Ginger Watkins, director of the Cameron Industrial Foundation, said.

“This is significant in that those taxes you would pay on inventory for the goods that qualify that are shipped out you don’t have to pay taxes. Cameron can claim a triple Freeport exemption. It benefits Charlotte Pipe and other businesses in taxing districts that qualify for that exemption.”

Today, Charlotte Pipe is the largest manufacturer of DWV pipe and fittings in the United States and operates one of the largest fittings molding facilities in the world.

In addition to Cameron, the company has satellite pipe extrusion plants in Muncy, Pa.; Wildwood, Fla.; Cedar City, Utah; and Huntsville, Ala.
