Once built, LKQ’s existing approximately 400 Nashville employees will move to the new facility, where the company will create 150 new jobs over the next five years.
“This expansion effort will ensure that LKQ can continue to meet the growing demand for our products in North America and around the world,” said Justin L. Jude, Senior Vice President of Operations of LKQ. “We are grateful to Davidson County and the State of Tennessee for their continued support as we invest in our shared future.”

The company has operations in North America, Europe and Taiwan.

“LKQ’s decision to expand in Tennessee showcases that our state’s workforce and business climate allows companies to expand and continue to succeed here,” said Gov. Bill Haslam. “I appreciate LKQ for its continued investment in Tennessee, for creating 150 new jobs in Nashville and Davidson County, and for bringing Tennessee one step closer to our goal of making Tennessee the No.1 location in the Southeast for high quality jobs.”
