COLUMBIA, Tenn. – The Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development (TNEDC) and Austin Consulting announced in August the recertification of Cherry Glen Industrial Park as a Select Tennessee Certified Site. Cherry Glen was initially certified in 2014 and the current certification will remain in effect until August 2023.
The Select Tennessee program launched in 2012 to help communities prepare industrial sites for private investment and job creation. Each certified site must meet high quality standards and provide extensive documentation. This ensures that companies looking to relocate or expand receive detailed and reliable information during the site selection process. Cherry Glen is among sixty-one sites across Tennessee that have been certified as a Select TN Site.
Cherry Glen Industrial Park is located directly off Highway 43 in Mount Pleasant, Tennessee and has 234 certified acres available for development with numerous options for lot configurations, ranging in size from approximately 10 to 150 acres. The site includes four internal roadways for convenient site access and all major utilities have been extended to provide access to each available lot. Since achieving Select TN Certification in 2014, three new companies have located their operations within Cherry Glen Industrial Park: Smalticeram USA, Inc, The Doug Jeffords Company Inc, and Fuel Total Systems.
“Achieving certification as a Select TN Site has undeniably helped spur economic development in Cherry Glen Industrial Park,” said Travis Groth, Vice President of Economic Development at the Maury County Chamber and Economic Alliance. “We are proud of the companies that have selected Cherry Glen as the location for their operations and look forward to the continued development opportunities that re-certification of the industrial park creates. We would like to thank our partners at the City of Mount Pleasant, Mount Pleasant Power System, Maury County, TNECD, TVA, and MTIDA for the invaluable assistance they have provided during the effort to successfully re-certify Cherry Glen Industrial Park as a Select TN Site.”
Select TN Certification places a property on a premiere short list of shovel ready sites within the State of Tennessee and includes marketing support from TNECD. The certification also distinguishes the site in the eyes of professional site selectors and companies as being deal ready, which can be a critical factor in successfully landing fast moving projects.
