Tidewater Equipment Company this week announced the development of a new location in Marianna, expecting to set up at the old Safari helicopter site in the Marianna Airport Commerce Park.
It plans to be in operation here toward the end of June.
The business plans to start its newest location with a crew of 8-10 workers, and continue to add personnel for a team of about 20 after their first year in the roughly 16,500-square-feet building, according to Zach Gilmore, vice president of Business Development for the Jackson County Economic Development Committee.
Tidewater’s regional General Manager Jackie Fleetwood said the jobs will range from entry-level parts counterpersons to skilled equipment technicians and that area resident David Pollack will be the branch manager for Marianna. All other hires are expected to be local individuals that will receive on-the-job training in their positions.
The company has more than 20 locations across five states in the southeastern U.S.
