Southeast Tube Company


Southeast Tube Company was established in 1984 and has undergone numerous changes in the past twenty years.  The initial plans were to support local automotive suppliers.  However, with higher profit margins in the furniture and material handling industries, Southwest Tube’s marketing strategies have changed.  With companies located in Ohio, Alabama, and Tennessee, Cadiz became the ideal geographical location for our tubing division.  Cadiz has excellent industrial support facilities.  The utility cost, taxes, shipping logistics and cost of living further enhance Cadiz’s ability and desire to support future industrial growth.  We look forward to a long and prosperous future in Cadiz, Kentucky.

Ethridge Plastics, Inc.

has been in Trigg County since 1991.  It was no question when we decided to build here in Trigg County that it was a great place to raise your family and could work without having to drive out of town for a good job.  The people and their work ethics in our community make Trigg County proud.  Our location is 0.7 miles from the interstate I-24 and with this accessibility it makes it easy when shipping parts by trucking lines.  We truly live and work in a great community!
