Hetsco to add 40 jobs in move

A Greenwood company plans to relocate to Franklin and expand, bringing 40 new jobs to the city over the next four years.

Hetsco Inc., which does routine and emergency maintenance and construction management and labor for power plants and industrial operations, will buy and move into Franklin’s shell building on Graham Road, which has been considered by multiple companies since construction started in spring 2013.

Since the walls and ceiling already are built, Hetsco will be able to open the new facility about six months faster than if it had to expand its current location or build a new facility, President and Chief Operating Officer Sam Willard said. The company has outgrown its headquarters off Pushville Road in Greenwood and wants to combine multiple leased offices into one location, Willard said.
