Comprehensive Logistics Co., Inc. officials have announced the company will locate a new automotive manufacturing support facility in Spring Hill, TN that will house the manufacturing and light assembly of automotive components for the General Motors plant nearby. The Ohio-based third-party logistics provider will invest $30 million and plans to create more than 200 new jobs.
“We want to welcome Comprehensive Logistics to Tennessee and congratulate the company on its latest expansion,” Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam said. “Comprehensive Logistics’ decision to locate a new facility in Spring Hill is another example of the excellent logistics infrastructure and business-friendly environment our state offers to companies around the world. ”
“I appreciate Comprehensive Logistics for investing in Tennessee and for recognizing the strength of our superior workforce,” Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bill Hagerty said.
“This contract award demonstrates Comprehensive Logistics’ history of successfully providing a complete logistics and value-added warehouse solution and exemplifies our expertise in helping General Motors to meet growing consumer demand for their vehicles,” Brad Constantini, executive vice president and principal of Comprehensive Logistics Co., Inc., said. “We are excited to open our first operation in Tennessee and become a part of the Spring Hill community.”
“Having a major operation like Comprehensive Logistics locate a facility here is huge for Spring Hill,” Spring Hill Mayor Rick Graham said. “It’s a perfect complement to Magna, it will make General Motors’ operations far more efficient and it will create more good paying jobs here at home, which will spawn more local economic growth. We are thrilled to see the terrific results of what has been a successful economic development effort.”
In addition to logistic support, Comprehensive Logistics will provide value-added services including parts sequencing and assembly of headliners, tires and wheels, rear suspensions, and front verticals.
