HWI hosted a job fair last month at the Lawrence County Chamber of Commerce, which drew hundreds.

The company specializes in refractory products, which protect assets in manufacturing processes that include chemical or heat processes.

Company officials have said the positions will range from entry-level positions to those with experience in manufacturing and shipping.
