Tennessee Tool and Fixture will locate its first U.S. operations in Manchester, TN. The Toronto-based automotive mold and casting manufacturer will invest $6.5 million in the new facility and create 60 new jobs in Coffee County.
“Tennessee Tool and Fixture is proud to make Manchester, Tennessee in Coffee County our new home,” said Tennessee Tool and Fixture President and Owner Sue Beamish. “Both the State of Tennessee and Coffee County have been extremely supportive throughout our search for a long-term location. Thank you to everyone for the wonderful welcome we have received. We look forward to building a strong employee team and continuing the development of our customer relationships throughout the southeastern U.S.”
Tennessee Tool and Fixture manufactures molds and castings for automotive companies, primarily automotive seats. The company is a member of a group of tooling companies based out of Toronto with over 40 years of experience providing high quality molds and castings for the automotive industry.
“I want to thank Tennessee Tool and Fixture for locating its first U.S. operations in Coffee County,” said Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bob Rolfe. “Tennessee ranks No. 1 for growth in automotive employment, and it means a great deal that Tennessee Tool and Fixture will be adding 60 new jobs to this sector. I look forward to seeing our future partnership and the company’s growth in Tennessee.”
The new operation is Tennessee Tool and Fixture’s first U.S. facility. The company will renovate an existing building in Manchester. With this location, the company will be better equipped to serve its Southeast customers.
“Congratulations to Tennessee Tool and Fixture on its decision to locate in Manchester, Tennessee,” said John Bradley, TVA Senior Vice President of Economic Development. “TVA and Duck River Electric Membership Corporation are privileged to partner with the State of Tennessee and the Coffee County Industrial Development Board to help create new jobs and prosperity in the community.”
