Infab to Bring Manufacturing Jobs to Rural Washington County

The Utah Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED) and the Economic Development Corporation of Utah (EDCUtah) today announced Infab Corporation plans to expand its operations in Utah adding 90 jobs and $789,753 in new state revenue and $5 million in capital investment over the next five years.

“Infab is experiencing rapid growth and will be a great addition to Hildale,” said Val Hale, executive director of GOED. “This project will help rural Utah create new jobs and be a benefit to the skilled workforce in Washington County.”

Founded in 1981, Infab designs and manufactures radiation protection apparel and equipment for healthcare professionals. Infab is the country’s largest provider of medical radiation protection equipment and sells its products through distributors in the United States and internationally, as well as online. The company offers lead aprons, glasses and gloves as well as other equipment for patient x-ray protection. Infab is based in Camarillo, California.

“Anytime we can help a county diversify its economic base with the addition of a manufacturing project, it’s a good day,” said Theresa Foxley, president and CEO of EDCUtah. “When that manufacturing project lands in a rural community that’s striving to transform itself and bring good jobs to its residents, it’s particularly gratifying. Congratulations, Hildale, and welcome, Infab.”

The company plans to utilize an existing 56,000-sf facility.

Mayor Donia Jessop of Hildale called the Infab expansion a “gamechanger” for her town.

Jake Berlin, Business Development Manager, managed this project for EDCUtah.
