UB Community Development announces $8 million in New Markets Tax Credit funding for Hamilton Homebuilders.

Atmore, AL – UB Community Development, LLC (UBCD), a community development partner of United Bank, has announced $8 million in New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) funding for Hamilton Homebuilders to update and reopen manufacturing facilities in Hamilton and Double Springs, Alabama.

Hamilton Homebuilders is a leading manufactured home builder committed to building homes with quality craftsmanship and modern comfort. The NMTC funding will be used to update, refurbish, and reopen two manufacturing locations.

The facility in Hamilton, AL was originally constructed in the early 1970s and was closed for over five years while the owner determined if it would be feasible to refurbish and reopen the facility in a manner to support its operations.

The NMTC funding will allow Hamilton Homebuilders to make the necessary investments in the facility to meet modern production requirements. Given the rural location and specialty nature of the equipment, traditional financing was not a viable option to complete the scope of the project. Without the NMTC funds, the company would have been unable to make the necessary investments in technology and infrastructure (sprinklers, ventilation, plumbing, and sewage) to bring the facility to an optimal working capacity.

The square footage of the Hamilton facility is 211,000 and the cost for updating and refurbishing will be $3.7 million. The Double Springs facility measures 158,300 square feet and the total cost of that project will be $4.1 million. Once the facilities are up and running, general production will require approximately 250 full-time employees. Three maintenance jobs, 10 production managers, eight administration managers, and six administrative positions will also be filled.
