3 Troxel Company Workers Severely Burned in Tennessee Plant Explosion


An explosion at a manufacturing plant in Moscow, Tennessee, severely burned three workers late last week.

Explosion Involved Troxel Plant’s Ventilation System

First responders were called to the Troxel Company plant, located at 11495 Tennessee Highway 54 in Fayette County, around 2:20 p.m. on June 11th.  According to the Fayette County Emergency Management Agency, the blast occurred in the facility’s ventilation system.

Medical helicopters flew two of the injured workers to a hospital in Memphis. The third was taken to the hospital by ambulance.

Authorities have not released the victims’ names or commented further on their condition. However, they did confirm that all three are Troxel Company employees.

It’s not clear what caused the ventilation system to explode. The incident remains under investigation.

Troxel Company Worker Tragically Crushed to Death Last August

Founded in 1898, the Troxel Company is a major manufacturer of welded steel tubing and fabricated products, including assembled goods and components, roll forms, stampings, and mill lengths and cut to length tubing. The Moscow plant’s products include vehicle components for General Motors, Ford, Fiat Chrysler, Toyota, Honda, Nissan, Hyundai, Kia, and Mercedes.

Unfortunately, last Thursday’s ventilation system explosion was the Troxel Company’s second serious incident in less than a year. According to records from the U.S. Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), a worker at the Moscow facility was tragically crushed and killed last August when a coil of steel weighing around 3,000 lbs. fell from equipment.

OSHA later fined the Troxel Company $12,000 for four serious safety violations in connection with the worker’s death.
