The Greater Peoria Region Welcomes Pennsylvania based Regal Industrial Corporation

Tazewell County:  The Greater Peoria Economic Development Council is pleased to welcome Regal Industrial Corp. to the Greater Peoria Region.

Regal Industrial is an industrial coatings company with over 47 years of experience, headquartered in Donora, Pennsylvania (just outside of Pittsburgh). Regal Industrial specializes in metalizing, sandblasting, fireproofing, waterproofing and industrial coatings of all types. They have the ability to perform all blasting and coating services on-site and serve all of North America from their five corporate locations across the country.

Regal’s metalizing process protects steel bridges from corrosion and has led to exponential growth for the company.  As their customer base in the Midwest grew, they sought and found an existing building in unincorporated Tazewell County (near South Pekin) that was the perfect location to meet the needs of their growing customer base.

Regal acquired the former Superior Industries building on Wagonseller Road in 2022 with plans to hire 15-20 new employees before ramping up to full operations in 2023.  Some of the new positions will include sandblasters, painters, welders, handlers/loaders, and more.

“The Tazewell County Board is pleased to welcome Regal Industrial Corporation to the region and our county,” says David Zimmerman, Tazewell County Board Chairman. “They have learned what we have known for decades — Tazewell County is a great place to land and grow your business. We look forward to helping them succeed.”

“We are happy that Regal Industrial Corporation chose Greater Peoria to support their growth in the Midwest and across the country.  As a community known for our vast expertise in metal manufacturing, we have the workforce and expertise to support their business goals and are excited to work with them in the months and years to come,” says Chris Setti, CEO of the Greater Peoria Economic Development Council.

“The facility at 14425 Wagonseller Road was a perfect fit for our business. Regal Industrial Corporation now has a tremendous advantage to service our business partners throughout the Midwest.  We are also excited to be part of the Pekin community and look forward to the evolution of our organization and this great facility,” says Joe Professori, Vice President of Regal Industrial Corporation.
