RAINSVILLE, Ala.—The Rainsville City Council held a special meeting Monday night to meet with representatives from Rainsville Technology, Inc. (RTI) to formalize the company’s legal agreements with the city regarding an expansion of RTI’s current operation. RTI is the largest employer in Rainsville, and the upcoming expansion will increase RTI’s workforce to more than 500 total employees.

RTI Production Manager Kevin List said the project will include construction to expand current warehouse space and will ultimately result in the creation of 20 new jobs over the next year.

“This project will allow us to consolidate some of our warehousing as we create more space,” List said. “Construction will begin immediately and will take about 6 months to complete. We will make the hires to fill the new positions over the next year and will have the positions filled by December of 2016.”

Rainsville Mayor Nick Jones said he and the city have been working closely with RTI to help make the expansion a reality.

“This expansion is a milestone for RTI and great news for the City of Rainsville,” Jones said. “RTI has always been a great corporate citizen. Not only do they provide more than 500 jobs to the Rainsville area, but they also show a continued commitment to being involved with and improving this community and enriching the lives its people.”
