Metrican Stamping, LLC has announced it will expand its manufacturing operations, creating 104 new jobs in Dickson, TN. The metal stamping and value-added components manufacturer will invest $18.9 million in the project.
“We are pleased to be a part of the Dickson industrial community,” said Metrican Plant Manager Bob Bowen. “We look forward to continuing operations and growth in Middle Tennessee and appreciate the support that state and local government have provided us since our start up in 2005.”

“I want to thank Metrican for choosing to expand in Dickson and for creating more than 100 new jobs in Dickson County,” said Gov. Bill Haslam. “We have focused on fostering an environment in Tennessee where manufacturers can thrive and invest in our communities. I appreciate Metrican for helping Tennessee’s manufacturing industry continue to grow and for helping us get one step closer to our goal of making Tennessee the No. 1 location in the Southeast for high quality jobs.”
“Tennessee has added over 35,000 jobs to the manufacturing sector over the last five years and I want to thank Metrican for adding more than 100 new jobs in Dickson County,” said Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bob Rolfe. “I appreciate Metrican’s decision to expand its footprint in Dickson and I thank the company for its continued investment in Tennessee.”
