NASHVILLE – Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam, Economic and Community Development Commissioner Randy Boyd and Tenneco officials today announced the global manufacturer will open a new facility in Spring Hill and create up to 200 new jobs during the next three years.
Tenneco’s new Clean Air manufacturing plant will support programs for General Motors. The 117,000-square foot facility, located near GM’s Spring Hill assembly plant, is scheduled to begin production in late 2016. It will be Tenneco’s second facility in Tennessee, joining the company’s Clean Air plant in Smithville, which employs 650 people.
“We want to congratulate Tenneco on its new operations in Spring Hill, which has long been a hub for automotive innovation and a crucial engine for Tennessee’s economy,” Haslam said. “Tenneco’s investment speaks to the highly-skilled workforce and business-friendly environment we offer global companies that are making the latest strides in automotive engineering, and brings us another step closer to our goal of making Tennessee the No. 1 location in the Southeast for high quality jobs,”
The new facility will employ approximately 20 people when it opens, but will gradually grow to employ up to 200 by 2019.
“I am very pleased to welcome Tenneco to Maury County. We appreciate the excellent jobs they are creating and their selection of Maury County as a place to do business,” Maury County Mayor Charlie Norman said. “It is an exciting time as Maury County continues to move forward. We greatly appreciate Tenneco being an important part of that progress.”
“We are elated to welcome Tenneco to Maury County. The high quality jobs created by such a great company will further enhance the positive momentum our community is experiencing,” Wil Evans, president of the Maury County Chamber and Economic Alliance, said. “I’d like to thank our regional economic development partners, the Industrial Development Board of Maury County and the Spring Hill Board of Mayor and Alderman for their work on this project. NorthPoint Development has also played a critical role in this project. The facility they are constructing for Tenneco will be world class, just as the others they have built in this supplier park.”
“TVA and Columbia Power & Water Systems congratulate Tenneco on its latest announcement to open operations and create quality job opportunities in Spring Hill, Tennessee,” TVA Senior Vice President for Economic Development John Bradley said. “We are privileged to partner with the Maury Alliance and Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development to help facilitate Tenneco’s growth in the Valley.” Currently, Tenneco is searching for qualified candidates to fill positions including area manager, materials manager, quality engineer and welding engineer as well as qualified welders and team leaders.
